The hotel is in a great location and beds are comfy! Check in and check out was also very quick & easy! The downsides are that I found a leftover pizza box on top of the mini fridge after I checked in, and the towels had some stains on it.

The hotel was clean and beautiful staff was nice, no complaints. Except that they have limited parking in the hotel parking garage and it isn’t free if you’re staying at the hotel. 30 dollars a night, also if you’re looking for a cheaper public parking you’ll have to drive far or pay 30 dollars for 10 hours.
