    Felt safe upon 3am arrival, rooms were clean and beds were luxurious. Shuttle was helpful for mall and airport trips. Convention food was delicious and chicken nuggets for snack were a plus! Specifically the pasta bar at lunch was top notch.

    Would have liked to have some classical music available in the room. We had an outstanding breakfast at Simpsons. Great waitress who knew to bring coffee right away and ask about juice right away... terrific menu and great food. A marvelous start to the day.
