Loved the hotel. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms are very spacious and clean. I stayed with my three daughters for three days. The staff was helpful and nice. The hotel provides discount on nearby parking. definitely will visit again.

Stayed here last week and couldn't be happier. The food downstairs was spectacular, and the hotel is very modern and sleek. The layout of the room/bathroom could be a bit confusing at first, but really not a big deal and it kind of adds to the charm. Wifi is among some of the best I have experienced abroad. This is...
