    We loved having the concierge arrange a half day safari for us on our last day. He also helped us find a fabric store. We loved having the four star experience for the price of an average American hotel. I am sure we could have utilized his services more if only our stay had been longer. It was like having a personal assistant advising us on maximizing our trip.

    The location was great. It was handy to many main attractions and provided a courtesy coach to the Waterfront. The breakfast provided was excellent and the joyful breakfast breakfast chef made mornings cheerful and fun. Dinner was also wonderful with excellent service and food. All staff were helpful and always had a smile and greeting.

    Pleasant trip.

    Great service. Buffet breakfast is amazing. Family room is slightly small. Children enjoyed the kids entertainment room setup for the holidays. Hotel is not far from Waterfront and there was a shuttle service to Waterfront.
