The place was really clean and nice. The staff were all very personable and friendly to me. the room itself felt very modern. The room I was in was open room with a king size mattress, a separate area for office space, and a small living room area. The only thing that was problematic was the size of the bathroom . The bathroom door was so close to the toilet that it was hard for me to close the door without It catching the towel mat I placed near the shower.
Overall, this was a good hotel. Staff was friendly, the food ad beverage good enough, and the room was comfortable. No complaints. There are other restaurants nearby as well. Not a bad location even if heading downtown for a meeting.
