We loved the location. The room was clean and comfortable. They offered a limited breakfast but wish they had a restaurant. They were very accommodating when they were sold out of kings but offered compensation. Very friendly staff. We will definitely stay again.

Very clean and quiet, food at the rooftop pool resaurant was fantastic even if a bit expensive. Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Shower was amazing. Front desk staff were incredibly kind and went above and beyond for me and my husband durinf our honeymoon stay. Would definitely stay again for the price over ANYTHING else in the city at the same price.

This was a very nice hotel. Staff was great. Valet was quick. Location was nice. The lighting in the room and bathroom was lacking. With all the lamps and overheads on it still seemed dim- especially in the bathroom. But it certainly wasn’t a deal breaker. I would stay again.
