Seriously you need to upgrade your toiletries. The tissues were horrible. The toilet paper cheap. I didn’t even want to try the shampoo and the rest. Not very classy. The hallway was noisy. We expected better.

Was there for a 70th birthday party. Great time. Contacted the hotel about 1 hour after I checked out to tell them that I had left a pair of black leggins in my room. (407) They said that theey would get back to me.....Have not heard.

Not worth the money! Needs cleaning
For $280 per night, the room was small and the carpeting had a musty smell. Rate did not even include breakfast. Only saving grace was it was convenient for my business location. But cut short my stay and moved to another hotel - 20 minute drive away but 2x the size, fresher, cleaner and cooked to order breakfast.
