The hotel was nice m, clean and new. Staff was pleasant, breakfast was good. Did not partake in the evening reception. I felt we paid too much for our stay. Would probably not ever stay here again for same cost.
Very convenient location near shopping and restaurants. Spent the weekend going to football game with family. Staff is excellent and room was very spacious and clean. The breakfast was included and was very good. Buffet style plus made to order omelet and waffles
