Extremely dated furnishings and appliances, room was filthy and dark. I was like being at Myrtke Beach in the 80's. There was trash behind the Murphy bed, the curtains were nasty looking, the elevators only worked on one end. The breakfast is over priced for what you are getting, normally this type of breakfast would be included at a chain hotel
Checked in and wanted to change my room to one that was higher up. They did and it was great! The Bar always has good food. Very relaxing stay. I would highly recommend staying here. We have stayed in every building except the new Indigo one. Never had a problem. Parking has always been good here too! Bring the family or bring a friend. Close to everything.
