When checking out the staff packed a breakfast "to go" with yoghurt and apples. Staff is very friendly & helpful. Also the facility was very close to our meeting destination. Thank you for the enjoyable stay!

Great location. Newer, cleaner hotel. Incredibly loud at night, like people were fighting all night and running around the floor above us. I wish the hotel staff would've intervened.

Liked the Netflix option and good view from our room. Didn't like the construction and smells, but I know that's only temporary.
