Check in was extremely slow and the staff kept talking to each other and doing other things besides helping people check in.

Our room was supposed to be a double Queen and was reserved as a King through Travelocity. The manager was rude when asked if other rooms were available because we had four kids with us. The hotel was sold out so we understood and made the king room work but did not have friendly attitudes when asking for other options.

From our fourth floor room, we could see at least a dozen different fireworks displays.

Nice clean property. Hallways are a bit odd. The design seems like the hotel add a bunch added on after the original build. Nice place.
