Reviewed yesterday NEW

This location has two buildings. Each is clean and professional. The staff are friendly and helpful with any questions or needs. Each building has a restaurant area that offers breakfast and dinner buffets. There is a lot of variety in dishes to serve anyone's sensibilities. I enjoyed trying the local foods. The rooms are surprisingly spacious in comparison to other...

Although I have stayed in this hotel previously, it was not until I stayed in the "older" building that I realized that the buildings were of different levels of quality. I had a room on the executive floor in the old building. The Executive Lounge in the old building is located in the "lobby area" immediately outside of the elevators...

I stayed here again a few weeks ago. Again very happy with my stay. Only 1 thing this time: My room was facing the side where I was awaken each morning at 5:00am by the "call to prayer" loudspeakers outside. That was annoying! I think that next time I'll ask for a room facing the other side.
