"I liked the floors and the air conditioning and cleanliness of the room. They probably need to replace some parts in the toilet because it seems the float was coming on even after flushing."

"This hotel is excellent! Friendly staff, super clean room, great selection of food at the breakfast, and good restaurants nearby. It would be nice if there was a laundry facility in the hotel, I had to go to a sister Hilton nearby to do my laundry, but other than that everything was perfect."
