The staff was really great. The infrastructure, however, is in need of repair. The shower drain in my room was clogged, and there was rust around some of the bathroom fixtures. These are things that the hotel should invest in and make sure are in proper working order.

Here for a conference. Everything was fine. Very clean. Took a little getting used to getting around, but very nice facilities. Very good location. Very safe. Lots of parking. Lounge and restaurant open on property. Not a whole lot to do around near the hotel
