I have been there a few times for short business trips. While I like the service (people are always there to answer any question), the overall impression is that the hotel is quite old. The rooms and the bathroom are feel quite old and would need a refresh. The Club Lounge is clearly below standards for an IC: small and...

Checked-in at this property expecting less but was amazed with the hotel facilities and service. Room was excellent, I like the idea of having a stationary bike beside the bed. Had a bit of confusion regarding complimentary water and fruits. There was none in my room when I came in. It took sometime before they were able to deliver. Overall...

It was not until the last day just before leaving that I noticed that there was a lot more than meets the eye. There is a non-descript hall way to the right on the entrance that will bring you to a HUGE...
