My daughter and I liked everything. We were only there one night. We were disappointed that it was raining the night we were there and that the pool and deck was closed. We'll have to return again.

Good music reverberating within interesting parking deck. Interesting surroundings! Lynn, the events coordinator, was in particular very welcoming and helpful. Only complaint was that my room had no window.
