    I was booking a 30 person conference for work, and working with this hotel was easy. I hadn't visited it first, but was pleasantly surprised with the nice conference room and food service. I would stay here again!

    I was attending a conference at the hotel, thus chose to stay there for convenience. Quiet hotel; quite guests, quiet location and quite HVAC in room. Room service is reasonable and very prompt and friendly. Would stay again.
