First room we had to move due to insect biting. They happily changed and upgraded our room. However, dead bugs found in the bathroom on floor, not enough towels.

The hotel was nice. The bathroom was a little dirty there was stickiness on the wall. I wasn’t big on their breakfast options. They only had poached eggs.

It is very expensive to stay there. It cost approx. $400.00 for a one night stay, and everything is extra. Even had to pay for parking and use of WXYZ lounge.
