Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience you encountered at arrival and for the inconsiderate guests that disturbed you. I trust the upgrade to the Executive Tower allowed you to enjoy the remainder of your stay with us and hope you have an opportunity to return in the near future. More

Driven from our home while our insurance company dried a flood, we were feeling pretty sorry for ourselves and our dog but staying here was very comfortable. The room was clean and updated, they...
