Great place
Amazing staff, service, accommodations, breakfast

Pros and Cons.
Breakfast buffet was poor and things like yogurt were not kept cool with ice, etc. Food was on the floor which the staff never notices and didn't clean up. Waited for coffee for 20 minutes. Hotel not located in the best part of town. Room was clean and comfortable. Room keeping was extremely responsive to our needs. Evening meals in the Mint restaurant were excellent. Had the best hamburger I ever had there. Their fish and chips was also outstanding.

Unsafe location, outside of hotel needs facelift!!
For the price I paid I was not happy with my stay. The location of the hotel is in a rather unsafe area. There was a man passed out on the side walk right outside the hotel when my husband and I left to go for dinner. Being a nurse I was concerned but with my husband being military he was concerned we were being targeted so we Unfortunately didn’t help the man. The outside of the hotel needs a total facelift include paint and new awnings. Although the rooms looked beautiful, the hotel was pretty vacant. The positive is that the staff was very polite. Because of the location, I would not stay here again.
