would have given a better rating, but the covid test that I scheduled ahead of time was somehow lost in the shuffle, as well as my pre-booked ride to the airport. Other than that, I would stay again. Great location and the Belford Suite was perfect for us!

It took over an hour to check in because they had no record of my reservation from expedia. After talking directly with expedia they were able to check me in and gave me a room upgrade. The room itself was very clean and inviting.

The hotel is located in the heart of the city where everything is at your door. The room was extremely big with a king bed. It was very clean and comfortable. The only thing that was not was the shower head. The water pressure was strong but the shower head was terrible and with the pressure, the water pinched my skin. Not comfortable. Besides that, everything was great!
