We love this hotel as the grounds and buildings are beautiful. The staff go out of their way to make your stay exceptional. The rate are great and they include a wonderful breakfast ( just like Radisson Hotels in Canada).

There were few reviews I read stating that this hotel has boarding school feel. I completly disagree and though was ready to expect that be4 I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised.

As a frequent business traveler, I am the first to appreciate a safe hotel with basic amenities. However, I just can't understand why people would stay here when they have other options. It's not the worst hotel but there really isn't anything too redeeming with it. It seemed like it was popular with the "tour bus" tourists, so perhaps that's...

We booked two night at the end of our trip here thinking we would be able to have the home comforts you expect of a international chain. Boy we were wrong! The hotel is in a sketchy part of town, with nothing near by - and the staff seem unable to help with directions. The building is run down, dark...

We stayed in this hotel for a work meeting over 10 days in July. The rooms are average, good sized. The main problem with the hotel is the terrible food quality at breakfast, coffee breaks and buffet lunch. Bad products, bad presentation and terrible preparation. The only good thing was Britt coffee, and nothing else. Also, the location its quite...
