Very friendly staff. The towels weren’t the newest, but they were clean. There was some misunderstanding about my transport bill, but it was resolved amicably. The food was good and the restaurant staff accommodated my requests even after hours.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
They wants $100 for early check in even they have rooms available. I saw several groups left the hotel because they insist this charge. After hours negotiation, they agreed on $40. Then they also ask for $50 for late check out. I stayed their for 2 nights with 2 kids. They also charge for $40 for extra person. So do not book this hotel. This is not a good hotel at all. You can have many other choices around there.
