Do not expect anything extravagant. It's sort of saying, you get what you paid for. If not of it's proximity to my nieces workplace, I would look for other alternative. Specifically talking about the upkeep of the hotel. The bathtub drains so slow, the sink have cracks hence I requested for a new room. Which by way was immediately addressed.... More

We got lucky and were upgraded to a suite. Obviously, size of the room was ginormous and nicely decorated. The shower was great with a massive shower head from the ceiling! The bed is comfortable. Overall, the hotel is basic with good service and conveniently located.
