8/10 Very good

Just ok
The hotel is nice. The toilet in my room was running and shutting off every couple minutes all night long. Did not sleep great as a result. I don't think there is a gym in the hotel either which was disappointing.

Mediocre room
Expensive room and nothing special. Cable wasn't working and hadn't been for 2 weeks. Shower spray handle subpar.
