Upon arriving our air conditioning in room was not working but the front desk made sure to move and upgrade us into a room that was! Very happy with our visit.

Limited service due to COVID-19 which was expected. Hotel clerks and valets were awesome. Had trouble on last morning with cool- cold water for showers. Otherwise our stay was great!

Bring your own pillows!
Everyone was so nice, and the room was very clean. My only complaints were the bed pillows were very flat and uncomfortable, and the gym facilities were a bit dated, and not everything was in working order.

We had a very good stay for the night. The only problem was that the pillows were to soft and to big.
