The property price doubled the day of my trip and they told me there was nothing I could do because I hadn’t paid already only reserved through Travelocity under “Reserve Now Pay Later.” The nightly rate was listed at $254 when I reserved and I was charged $419 after it was to late to cancel. The email link for my reservation also went down after I was billed to verify the change. Nice property but be watchful of price changes after booking especially when it passes the deadline to cancel.

You should have received a email confirmation confirming the rates on top were indeed correct. Our apologies if this may have caused some confusion to you- we hope you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you, Luis Mendoza General Manager

This hotel was a great value with a modern decore.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: small rooms
The hotel was a nice modern hotel that was very stylish and close to the beach and the shopping on State Street. The free WiFi was a great bonus to the rooms. Some people complain that the rooms were small, but we didn't really need much space since we didn't plan to spend too much time in the room. The room also had Direct TV with a lot of channels, which was nice to watch before going to bed. It's a great value for the hotel for a my wife and I, since we just needed a nice hotel to stay at for a good price. We would definitely stay again. Parking is available next door for $15 per day. There is no restaurant there yet, but they are building one on the premises that should be open soon. However, since it is so close to other restaurants it wasn't really a problem.

The staff was wonderful

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great staff
We stayed for 4 nights and it was great. We stayed on the second floor west and it was one of the most quietest hotel rooms we've stayed in. Considering the proximity to the rail tracks and the baby we saw on our floor we thought we were in for some wakeful nights. Great 2nd floor balconies and the first floor garden rooms are awesome too! The location is within walkingt to everything-would stay again!
