Great staff but rooms could use an upgrade
It was a great trip but it was very difficult to operate the lights and the shower in the room. I was never able to get the water to a hot enough level to be comfortable.

Cannot rate at this time. Plans to travel to NY had to be canceled due to weather in New England. Called to explain the circumstances and desk receptionist was very understanding and helpful. Will rate on our next stay. Reason for poor ratings is because we did not stay at the hotel for this reservation. Have stayed once before and gave it an overall rating of all "happy" faces.
