The Bad
This hotel was recently renovated and upgraded by Marriot and there were few reviews found for this newer property. Among the reviews sourced for this analysis, most reviews were positive and the only complaints found seemed to be isolated incidents.

One guest thought that the room rates were expensive. One reviewer complained that he did not get a wake-up call as requested and another guest said that the furniture configuration in her suite prevented her from using the sofa bed.

A couple of the guests suggested that theses service inconsistencies could have been a result of "growing pains" for the new property.
