        Location

        $220 was a lot to pay for a minimum of services.

      • Couple
        5.0

        Noisy location. Sits above a Chinese restaurant. Walls VERY thin. Woken up both nights in middle of the night & kept awake by noisy neighbors sex, EW! Very glad our son was not with us on this trip.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        clean room, very nice stuff, huge continental breakfast

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        only one staff member was not very friendly and pre occupied with cell phone

      • Family with children
        5.4

        Room was small but new renovations were good, liked decor of room alot.

        Found sex jell in sheets of bed, also when checking out I left prescription glasses on bed, when I returned a few hours later to retreive, glasses weren't turned in. Call a few days later still no glasses turned in. Calls into question the honesty and/or thoroughness of cleaning staff.
