  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This is a very nice hotel right on South Congress, so there is a lot to do nearby. There are also many dining options attached to the hotel and a lovely rooftop pool. The room was pretty standard and with a modern style that that sometimes sacrificed convenience, but was otherwise nice and clean. No microwave and the fridge was more for drinks. Perfect for if you are planning to go out a lot.
