Located quiet area. Overall service was great but quite old hotel rooms. It stays in 90s. Bedsize was super-small.

Everything was great. Clean room and excellent service. Two things can be improved: 1. Parking staff - didn't offer any help. Indeed, I had to look for the staff to get the car key. 2. Executive level - was asked to leave the room by certain time. Usually, at other hotels you can stay till the closing hour (usually 10 pm) and allowed to finish food and drinks. Here, you must leave without finishing your meal and drinks.

Dirty and disgusting rooms
1-6 floor rooms should not be sold. Their conditions are extremely bad! Just simply disgusting. Carpet looks like it came out of car garage. Unbelievable! Even the renovated rooms look so dated. When I asked the hotel staff not to sell those rooms, they just gave me a poker face and didn't even give a courtesy to make eye contact and listen to me. So unprofessional. I strongly do not recommend this hotel!
