I ordered a queen room with 2 queen beds and I was given a room with 2 double beds. It was extremely uncomfortable to sleep in a double bed. We are 4 grown men. I purposely chose this hotel because it was one of the only places left that was offering 2 queens in the same room. I am extremely disappointed, I barely slept. It was a nightmare. And to add fuel to the fire, our room was only cleaned once in 3 nights. I had to call the room service 3 times for the maid to come that 1 time.

The property was centrally located - within walking distance of shops and eateries. The bellman was very helpful. It would have been nice to have a microwave in the room however, I understand that you could have gotten one if requested so that was not bad. I would stay there again.
