Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The front desk gal Nora was very helpful as we were frustrated with the technology in the room. Being of the older generation, we were used to having as least one printed guide in the room as to how things work. I would not recommend staying here if lack of in room info is an issue for you. We didn't even know how to call the front desk!! No info on how to work the thermostat, phone and the Wi-Fi was spotty. There was a scan code for info on how to work the TV, station info etc which we tried but with the Wi-Fi spotty, it didn't work. No towels at the pool. Other than these issues, the place is very modern and the front desk was helpful...we were directed to call the company tech department with our Wi-Fi connection issues, which they fixed. We did not use the amenities of the hotel or the surrounding areas except for the pool. The area nearby was convenient for restaurants, shopping etc.

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Don't be misled by the pix, which make it seem as if your standard room has separate areas. It's one modest-sized space, very crammed; you cannot even realistically watch TV from the couch, which is spartan and uncomfortable, like the rest of the furniture. The staff were friendly but not at all proactive, failing to explain aspects of the hotel (like the parking situation, and how to get in and out out of the parking facility, which is not connected to the hotel, so you must walk outdoors in bad weather). Very disappointing.
