Good location, but the maid service kept forgetting simple things like new glasses for drinking each day, or soap , or shampoo . It was infuriating and after complaining nothing was done.

Our room was very clean and spacious but it was VERY noisy all night. I was traveling with my 6 year old son and had to call the front desk twice at midnight due to noisy neighbors. The first time I called I waited 15 minutes and security still had not arrived. They did arrive after the 2nd call but we were also near the elevators and were awakened every 10 minutes by loud people getting off the elevator until 2 am. Not a family-friendly property.
