    Fee for dog

    The front desk staff were helpful and professional.

    This property is under renovation. Their web site suggests that the regular price of a room is over $300 per night, which would be ridiculous given the present standard of the hotel facilities.

  • 9.6

    The beds were super comfy / breakfast was great the staff very nice. the room was clean.

    We would have liked a place or space to play. There was nowhere to let a little kid to play.

    We judge a place by the staff it employs and in this case all of the staff we encountered were very friendly and the service was top notch

  • 9.6

    I liked the onsite laundry facilities.

    That there was no swimming pool. I have stayed there before a few times and have never got a room with a view of the courtyard. The grassy area.

  • 8.8

    Air conditioner!

    The air conditioner was noisy and no way to turn it down to minimize the noise.

  • 9.6

    The hotel was in good shape and the beds, linens and towels were terrific.

    The computers in the lobby were not working very well.
