The room I had was uncomfortably cold. No matter how I adjusted the thermostat, including turning it off, the room had a chill to it. I asked for a bathrobe to keep warm and I was told that they don't have that service. I thought that the food was good and the employees were friendly but the overall experience was... More

Great hotel with great amenities. Solid gym. Beautiful outdoor pool with bar service. Spa where we had great massages and a steam. Breakfast buffet was great and very affordable. You can see the hotel from almost anywhere in town as its the tallest building in the city. Bikes for rent right outside. Fun night spot in the hotel lobby bar.
