Though the hotel is overall good, but is expensive compared to other hotels. Below are the points from my observation. 1. Staff behaviour is decent, nothing overwhelming. 2. Price to value ratio is not quite satisfactory. 3. Food is expensive. Taste is decent.

Had a comfortable stay with family during my Christmas Eve trip. The hotel staff made our stay very comfortable. Hotel food is ok but not many options for food around the hotel. The suite was comfortable since all 4 of us were together. Location is excellent but parking can be a little troublesome.

From the rooms to house service and location everything was top notch. Our building even had a...
