They were very friendly, allowing us to check in very early because our room was ready. Then when we were leaving they allowed us to leave our bags and return later to get them. ...

Convenience but old.It was nice to access to the convention center and lots of restaurant, fast fashion shopping and sightseeing place. Although the room was too tiny and noisy. Especially the noise in the morning was terrable. No coffee machine.
