2/10 Poor

Would not recommend always read the fine print
We didn't know that we had to pay for parking at all till we did our research on it 35.00 a night plus paying over close to 600 to stay there is a bit ridiculous we didn't mind paying to stay for the 3 days but really paying for parking is ridiculous plus the guest there was loud and rude towards me I didn't appreciate that all I was doing was minding my business. Would not recommend this place to no one.

Nice hotel and location. Guests can be rude
The hotel amenities, location, as well as guest services are great. The rooms and beds are comfortable. Other guests can be rude as a group of them took over the pool with open alcohol containers and spilled in the pool. They totally overrun my underage nephews out. Also a guest on our floor have a little dog they just let it bark and scratching the door all days and nights. Guest service desk tried to get a hold of them but get no response.
