Great staff but old facility
Rooms are dated. First room had a view of the back of a truck in the alley. Second room had the heat cranked to maximum until the fellow fixed it.

8/10 Very good

Had a wonderful stay, close to restaurants an malls, the building is older but has been updated nicely, only thing we noticed was because of its age, you could hear a lil bit more outside and above room noise than in newer hotels. Bed was super comphy
