The hotel was close to the airport and shuttle service provided was good. We had a loud group in the adjoining room but people are on vacation and should be allowed to have fun. Our request for a different room was well received and granted so everything worked out.

Our stay here was extremely average. It was nice that everything was within walking distance, but there is a large homeless population around and in alleys nearby, so it didn’t feel the safest after 7pm. The hot tub wasn’t available 3 out of our 4 days and communication about it was very poor. The toilet was constantly running and the shower was extremely loud at the use of hot water. No microwave either. But they did extend our checkout to noon instead of 11am since we asked. Overall, probably wouldn’t stay there again.
