Nice hotel great staff
My fiancé and I stayed for NYE and it was very nice . We were greeted immediately by the valet to assist us with parking he was a very friendly older gentle. Upon entering it was busy but we were greeted again by another worker. Check in was a breeze and Taniya was very pleasant , even offered us bottled water to take to the room . The room was very clean and cozy . The shower was a bit hard to regulate the temperature but otherwise good . It was noisy at night which was expected being that it was nye. I do wish that the restaurant inside the hotel stayed open longer to have cocktails they closed a bit early . I would stay again
