The staff was less than friendly and uncooperative, Not one time were staff notably helpful or willing to do anything more than the bare minimum. No one greeted hotel guests in the am nor evening as is customary for a business in a large city. I had a request to switch rooms due to not having a view, which was denied even though it was early in the day. Support Staff did not appear to be helpful, not in directions nor in the free buffet, the orange juice tasted like soap and when told I told staff my request was denied. The menu selections were not varied and the same food items were presented day after day. I will never stay nor recommend this hotel.

Room spacious. 2 queen Beds comfortable. Shower Water flow small. Bottle water included. Good buffet breakfast. Can walk to nearby Mercado Beethoven to buy fruits/food. Close to airport with Uber ride 12-15 minutes. A little noisy with the ecoeing sound from the hotel building. Desk top light not working. Area seems like in working class neighborhood but with one nice restaurant next door.
