The Bad
Complaints were few and far between for this hotel. 

A couple of guest reviewers were disturbed by noise at the hotel, but they seemed to be isolated cases; one was a hockey team and another was from the music at a Christmas banquet being held at the hotel.

A few guests missed having a free breakfast.
