    Staff were superior except for the women in the white dress, she was grouchy. Jessica and Alphonso were excellent as was the breakfast man and the cleaning lady on our floor.

    Small room and bathroom, the shower can barely fit a big size man. The location of the hotel is on a busy one way street which make it difficult to use your car to get around. They meed an ice machine.
