I was a little wary about the my stay here. While at brunch to kill time before check-in, we received a phone call that the upgrade we had received was a mistake and we would have to revert to the smaller, original room reserved. Days before the trip we called to cancel the room because it was too small for our party. We were told we had been upgraded to a suite and so we cancelled our other room at another hotel. We called twice after that to confirm our room before our trip and were told each time we had a suite. So on the day of our arrival, to be minutes away, and told that we don't have a room large enough to fit everyone was disappointing and frustrating. We were told they'd work with us when we arrived. Upon arrival, the manager Erik met us on the elevator and showed us a room that was able to fit comfortably. It was a real pleasure to have it all sorted out before we got there. I thought their continental breakfast options were plentiful.
