Location was amazing. One of the front staff was a bit standoffish. The room was clean and comfortable.

Booked only for one day but the view they gave us was outstanding. The room was very well kept and a nice 65 Samsung television to go with it. Location was perfect right in the middle of everything including walking distance for everything as well. I will most definitely consider staying here again
