Rude staff, you only get your room serviced every three days, poor WiFi for business, not worth the money.

The hotel common areas and rooms are attractively modern in appearance and very well maintained. The staff is very pleasant, customer oriented and the food was excellent. It’s location is within convenient walking distance of many attractions but the immediate environment is quiet and serene. By the same token, the off-site parking is a bit of a hassle. Overall, though, an excellent property reasonably priced
