First the positive: The staff was gracious and did their best to accommodate us and make us comfortable. The hotel is situated in a secured mall, so we were able to window shop at ease. The hotel lobby and the public areas are nicely decorated and welcoming. The negatives are: Our rooms were not ready and we waited more than...
