We stayed here for a quick one-night stay. I booked it based on other reviews and the fact that rooms with 2 beds come with Queen size. Check-in staff was very nice, and the room was clean and fresh. Beds were very comfy, and the bathroom was bright and spotless. Morning breakfast was tasty and all staff we encountered was...

One small negative: we ended up in a handicap-accessible room; the closet bar was so low in an already...

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this hotel! Was a very quiet, peaceful getaway. Not just any getaway though! This was my aunt's wedding! The staff understood that our whole family would be there, and managed to put us all on the same floor, so it was like our own little neighborhood! Staff were extremely polite. My cousin and...
