Our stay was ok overall. We had a king bay view room, it was a good size and view was great. On the downside the bathroom was small and the gym was not usable if anyone else is in there. Overall happy with our stay

4/10 Fair

The idea of paying $300 dollars for a room, and paying for a coffee in the morning is not acceptable in my opinion.
