    Great location, underground parking, nice staff, comfortable bed.

    The room had some issues, TV didn't work, doors were messed up, light went on and off. The good thing is, the staff dealt with the issues by refunding part of my money.

    Great

    The food was great, rooms were really nice, and comfortable. The staff were really nice and helpful.

    The drinks were way overpriced. Bottle of crown is between 20 n 25 dollars. Charging 8 dollars for a small drink is a bit irrational. Shots were the same price. At any good bar, it may be at 5 dollars the most. Lower drink prices and people will stay at your bar longer. Create a appetite to spend money on food. Supply and demand!

    I had somewhere to stay.

    This experience with the staff, electrical problems, and yelling children in the halls was very upsetting and frustrating. When we tried talking to an employee they very rudely ignored us possibly because of our young age. The experience was very poor all around.

    Complimentary breakfast with ample choice. Complimentary shuttle transport to/from business venue. Free wifi.

    Couldn't get room comfortably warm with temperature control. Very limited "fast food" evening dining menu, though tasty and ample servings.
