Staff was great. We had a birthday celebration. They provided a gift bag and were as friendly as I’ve encountered anywhere.

6/10 Good

The room is very small and not clean. We did not sleep well because we can hear the noise from the room next to us very clearly. The hotel is also short of comb and soaps which is unexpected. We upgraded to city view but there is no view at all. The view is blocked by parking building.
