The hotel in general, as well as our room, was very modern, updated decor, and incredibly clean. I was very pleased with the cleanliness. No signs of bed bugs either.
Staff were quite friendly. Good location.
A couple of rants, however:
Hotel doesn't provide in-room luggage stands. Very inconvenient.
Continental breakfast area was very poorly staffed and furnished. Very few tables for a busy weekend. Many people left unhappy. Also, food was not prepared timely or kept stocked on the buffet.
Pool area reeked of chlorine, which is not a good thing. Area surrounding pool was moldy and mildewy and pretty gross.
