I personally won’t come back, but that’s my issue. Found my room was cold, even with the AC off, most of the staff I talked to was rude.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I had a very comfortable room with special touches like real creamers for coffee in fridge. The elevator, front desk, and my room were clean and arranged with Covid-19 prevention in mind.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Great overall experience considering the COVID-19 precautions. Hand sanitizer could have been in more locations to attend to commonly touched surfaces (in or around the elevators particularly). The breakfast box was all high sugar and carbohydrates items which I was unable to eat. I totally understand the situation and don’t hold them accountable for my dietary restrictions. I came prepared and had a great sleep! Would recommend for others to stay.
