Would stay again
We stayed in a studio room, which was perfect for the two of us. The hotel was in a convenient location, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The HVAC was a bit loud (didn't bother us), but otherwise it was a very quiet room.

Loved everything about our stay. The room was sprawling with gorgeous views of the park. The room was immaculate. It was very quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. Can’t wait to go back. Stayed for two nights in the Platinum Library Suite.
