"Excellent hotel experience."
"I arrived early and my room was available. It was everything a hotel room should be; attractive, very clean and most accommodating. The service at the front desk was pleasantly thorough and receptionist was knowledgeable and helpful. Later in the evening receptionist was pleasant and helpful in supplying alternate arrangements. Overall, an excellent experience. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend this hotel."

"Some admin policies extremly poor while service-A1"
"What is bad is that prebooking a room 2 months in advance ends up costing you more than walking in off the street and booking the same room for an extra night. The prebooking to save dollars on room cost policy is a farce. Service excellent as is location and cleanliness."
