I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the room. The staff was very nice and the check in process went without a hitch. There was definitely cookies and popcorn ready in the lobby which was refreshing. I didn't have time to enjoy breakfast, but it looked adequate.

We were late arrivals on April 17, 2015, and were welcomed by friendly staff. Cookies and popcorn were still available at 10PM even with a full hotel. The 3rd floor room was clean and comfortable. What surprised us was the breakfast area, it was spacious and the food and beverage choices were not bunched together so people could move around.... More

Spent the night here with a friend from out of town. Everything was very clean and the bed linens crisp white and clean. There was a mini fridge in the room which was nice to have.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. Been staying there for over a year because of my husband's surgeries. Would not stay anywhere else! Would love to go down just to relax but can't do that yet. Rae Ann is an excellent front desk manager.

Nicole from the front desk was very nice and accommodating. The hotel was clean and pleasant with free popcorn and cookies throughout the day. I traveled with my soccer team so we fit four people to each room. The pullout couch was uncomfortable so I would recommend just booking another room instead. Would stay here again.

Very clean. Spent one night before going to Miami. Quiet next to elevator. Desk clerks very courteous. Left pillow & they bagged it, kept it until we stopped on way home. Housekeeping had returned it to front desk--expensive Tempurpedic pillow. Honesty admirable. Would stay there again.
