Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The heater was leaking water all night. The staff was nice enough to transfer us into a different room of we wanted to. The room was so spacious and lovely views. Didnt wash my hair as there's no hair dryer available. The staff though are very accomodating gave us a free parking as their validation machine is broken . Had a pleasant stay despite the structural issues. Will i come back again? Yes. only if the hotel rooms are all renovated
