While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them about the cost, the free breakfast, and noise transfer.
Some guests were disappointed with the cost of the hotel. They mentioned that because the rates already seemed expensive, the extra parking and Wi-Fi charges (each $12/day), should have been included in the price.
