This is such a terrific place to stay. We were upgraded to an executive king suite...and it was massive. There was a full kitchen, dining area, lots of closets, a living room area...a balcony, huge den, washer/dryer, 2 full bathrooms, a big bedroom with a comfortable bed and 2 tv's.
It was quiet, clean and would be ideal for a longer stay. The price was good and the location gets you to anything downtown easily.
Why do hotel pillows have a rounded, "cylindrical" shape? I'm accustomed to flatter, down-filled pillows and can't get used tp these foam-filled tubes you have for pillows. Sorry! Otherwise, I like the facility.
