I was greeted by staff during whole trip professional. Very clean and great food. I was there for business and used the business rooms. The rooms were clean and stocked with snacks and drinks during breaks.

Had a great stay while hosting a business meeting for 25 employees. Food was great, bar area was comfortable and great for socializing with co-workers. The meetings/classroom was perfect for our meetings.
