Looked smelled clean as soon as we walked in the building. We got an early check in (amazing) our room was clean. We have a small problem with our frig but they came and replaced it within mins. The breakfast was so good lots to choose from. And coffee was good too. The only thing i didn't really like was we had to pay for parking. But other than that we had a great stay and well be returning.
