The Bad
Although this hotel received many positive reviews, some negative feedback focused on additional charges for extra services, customer service and noise.

The hotel offers upgraded "Club Level" rooms which include complimentary Wi-Fi, bottled water, local calls, continental breakfast and evening appetizers in the Club Lounge. However, those staying in standard rooms do not receive the complimentary services and must pay a daily fee for things like Wi-Fi (per device fee to subscribe). All guests must pay for on-site parking. Some guests were annoyed with these additional fees, claiming that other hotels in the area include Wi-Fi, parking and local calls in the room price.

Staff received mixed feedback, some saying they were friendly while others felt they were unhelpful, indifferent and occasionally rude.

Some guests complained about being disturbed by noise from doors slamming and people talking in adjacent rooms.
