Stayed for 1 night at this property and assisted by a friendly young lady during check-in.The process took about 5 mins since i'm the hyatt passport member. The room is huge with reasonable price. Nice spread of food during breakfast and the receptionist remembered my name. Beautiful smiles and good service. Keep it up.
