Great hotel. The staff was awesome. Alondra was very helpful and made this experience better. Jafar helped us into the perfect room and was very polite. I called ahead because this was my first stay at this property and got all my questions answered by Cynthia as well as her helping me with some very important small details that made the whole stay a comfortable experience. I’m a Raving Fan!!||Kevin

As a travel enthusiast, I can confidently state that this is NOT a 4 star hotel. The appropriate rating would be in the 2.5 - 3 star range. The rooms are very tight and most have an obstructed view. Upon arrival, the halls were filled with a peculiar odor and my room linens were stained. The walls were also stained with makeup from the previous guest. During my 3 day stay my room never received house keeping services. Everyday I had to pick up new Towels/Wash Cloths from the front desk, if they were available. At one point, no wash cloths were available. If you need soap, you have to pick that up as well at the front desk. The building is older, so each room has a wall unit ac. There are only two elevators! One of which got stuck on a floor and the doors would not open. If you are looking for a luxurious and relaxing stay I would not recommend this place. This place is like a glorified self-service motel.
