The room was clean. Clean sheets clean towels. Comfy beds. Good breakfast. I was on the 8th floor. Quiet environment. The air was really cold. 3 HBO channels on the TV. A lot of ports to charge your electronic devices.

Good Morning, We normally have enough parking available in our hotel parking lot. If by chance the lot is full please check with the front desk and they can direct you to optional parking. Have a good day.
