The way I got booked into this hotel was through a Package deal. Therefore it wasn’t a hotel that I booked on my own based on a recommendation. I will say that hospitality wise....It was great. My flight was delayed, by about 3 hours, but a Driver from the hotel was there to pick me up. Therefore on that I was truly impressed. My Promotion package came with 3 days Free Wifi....which was nice. However, the internet service was the worst ever. I wasn't trying to do anything fancy like Skype or Face Time. I was just simply trying to text someone on Instant Messenger or Face Book, but even that was a struggle. Every time I sent a message, I had to log off of the internet and log back in. Therefore that was a bit aggravating. At one time I actually had to stand outside in the hallway in order to get a good connection. Originally I was on my Ipad, but I realized the next day that the internet worked slightly better on my Laptop.
My room was clean. However, I wasn’t impressed with the 2 very small twin beds in my room. I suppose I was under the assumption that my bed would be Queen or King….but I guess that’s what I get for assuming.
What I found to be really convenient was the fact that there were a few restaurants inside the hotel. So that was nice in terms of not having to leave the hotel to find something to eat. However, the food was ridiculously expensive. 1 bowl of regular soup cost nearly $15.00….therefore I thought that was a bit much for one bowl of soup.
Overall, as I mentioned before, the service was really good. The hotel was beautiful, and it was really clean, but it wasn’t enough for me to say that I would be staying in this hotel again.
