We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The location is great and easy to get to everything. We had a beautiful corner suite! The rooms were very modern, yet comfortable. The bed was very nice. The staff was super friendly and quick to assist us with anything we need. I will stay again!

Simple but enjoyable. I here there are some suites here that are very neat but we had a standard room. Definitely worth the stay. Also,...
