Stayed here to get away with my boyfriend and it was very pleasant. The room was very nice and spacious. The bathroom was luxurious and the hotel staff was very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I will also stay there again if I'm ever in the area.

I stayed here for a week for a conference. the big plus was it was close the airport.The rooms though clean are a bit worn...especially the carpet. I also thought housekeeping was inconsistent...no shampoos some days etc. The concierge was very helpful. Free shuttle to the airport a plus. the food was decent, but the service was slow on the...
