The room itself was nice. The bed was not that comfortable, but we got plenty of nice, puffy pillows! We were kind of bummed that it didn't come with a coffemaker, but we found a nearby coffee house (Bru House) that served some pretty awesome coffee.
As for the environment, it's truly a great place for families. Not that there is too much for kids to do at the hotel, but they were free to run, play, and be kids, especially in the courtyard. As for us, who have no kids and just wanted a good night's rest (and to sleep in!), it made for a very unpleasant experience. We were woken up every night (for 4 nights in a row: Thursday to Sunday night) at around 1:30am and again anytime between 6am and 8am from our neighbors yelling toddler and slamming doors (over & over). Again, our entire goal was to sleep in since we're early risers at home. Also, we were happy we had late nights as the kids were still up playing in the courtyard yelling at screaming as late as midnight. We were shocked that a) parents allowed their children to behave this way and b) that management allowed it.
If you stay here as a single person/couple, I recommend not paying extra for the courtyard view and staying away from all the chaos.
