The normal standard room for which they over charge are not good to stay. There is lot of noise and disturbance that gets into the room from restaurants below and kids play area. The hotel management did understand the complaint and I was moved to other room which had little to noise from outside. Thanks to them for that. The staff is also attentive and attends quickly to any requests made but overall tot seems overly charged as the property is bit congested. They have nice restaurants with good vibes.

A lot of construction and banging throughout the day. However there is no notification. Requested a new room as the closet door fell off and bathroom was disgusting. Staff were very accommodating. Not all rooms are updated. Owners appear to always be watching, but not friendly at all. Told by staff whom they were. They are also quite rude to staff, which was hard to watch.
