Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I did not know that it was a new hotel (opened only a few months ago). Everything was to a high standard. The food and service was great too. It was on sale on hotels.com and I believe that I got a four star experience for a three star price!
