Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The breakfast offerings were just right for the areas of choice, quality, and quantity. The venue was spacious and well cleaned and sanitized. The in-room cable service signal was spotty, subject to screen freezes. The facility had three elevators. Only one was working, leading to delays and frustration.
