Had a fantastic time here during the Olympics. The location is great - close to metro, beach, restaurants, grocery store. Rooms were cleaned daily. Towels were replaced when needed. Sheets were replaced every few days I think, but the beds were always made and my clothes and piles of stuff were magically organized each day. Free breakfast in the morning... More
