    Awesome, but bring your own pillow!
    It was great, but their pillows are just too firm! Overall, though, fantastic.

    Fair4.0
    Very mediocre stay
    Rooms and decor are dated, some amenities in room not present (chair/desk, robe), I couldn't get through to front desk or room-service by telephone, front desk was right next to a large bar and was deafeningly loud when checking-in, room service knocked on my door before 9am ("Housekeeping") waking me up. All in all, not a great experience.
