I frequent this hotel quite often and I am always impressed with the level of customer service. Everyone in this hotel is welcoming, friendly and helpful. Therese always greets me at the front desk, knows me by name and goes above and beyond to make my stay an enjoyable one. The new room renovations are great! I would highly recommend...

Three days before our arrival, I got a phone call from this hotel explaining they are over-booked for our weekend, and asking if we would switch hotels. I said no and asked to reconfirm our reservations. We have 3 rooms total booked for 10 people (3, 3 and 4). We included these numbers when we booked, but were informed that...

Very close to the airport. Attached to a very upscale mall that includes several excellent restaurants. The room had nice amenities, and the staff was very helpful. I stay in a hotel about twelve times each year. Norma, who cleaned my room, paid more attention to detail than anyone I have ever encountered.

Stayed one night for business and loved every minute of the stay. Your steps away from the mall which is connected to the hotel and minutes from the airport. The bed was awesome, best sleep I have gotten in a long time. The staff is very polite and classy. I will be back for sure!
