It was nice we had to change rooms right after getting there. The water was so hot you couldn't even wash your hands without either scalding them or just using cold. Could not get warm water. The hot tub and pool were nice.

The location was good and many restaurants and stores nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful. The carpet needs cleaning and/ or replacement. The ventilation system is poor and strong cooking odors from the restaurant filled the hallways and our room. The health club was disappointing. Also, the hotel is somewhat noisy with poor sound insulation.

The advertised ‘in room wi-fi” was extremely weak. Water pressure in the room was poor. No pool access (while I understand it is a challenging scenario, I know other locations in the area that have their swimming facilities available)
