8/10 Very Good

I really liked the location of the property. It was easily accessible by public transportation at any time of the day and because of the location, you can feel safe taking public transportation even at late hours of the night. The staff there were excellent and very attentive and pleasant. Every single staff there was incredible. One thing that I did not like was the fact that every guest had to stop at the front desk and wait for the staff to call up to the room before they could come upstairs. I think this is a bit invasive to someone's privacy. As long as the person knows what room or suite they're going to, they should be allowed to just go upstairs. Not every guest wants everyone to know who is coming to visit them. I don't believe people are just randomly walking into hotels from the street if they don't know who they are coming to visit. I personally, would like to see this changed.

Amazing Staff!
I didn't get the room that I booked at first and was put in an apartment off site of the hotel. They did however get me moved over as soon as they could. We did get in trouble for swimming after hours, but we had not seen any signs on the hours the pool was open. Overall, a great place to stay because the staff is amazing. They have been there for several years and tend to remember you. A very nice touch. Plus they will go over and above to make your stay good.
