    Great place to stay!
    Great place to stay. Service was both friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean. My only complaint is that continental breakfast was only fruit, yogurt, muffins. It appears to me that less expensive hotel have a much better continental breakfast.I expected so much more from a Hotel like this. Other than that everything was great!

    Friendly staff upon check in. Nice clean rooms but the walls were pretty thin. We heard someone fart in the next room.
