Room was very clean. Nice furnishings. The bathroom has a strange odor. It needs a fan or some other form of ventilation. Pleasant atmosphere in the common areas.

We highly recommend this hotel - rarely have I stayed at a hotel where every single staff member we interacted with was helpful, personable and friendly. It was the staff members’ customer oriented attitude that made this stay outstanding! The room was spacious and super clean, even though the bathrooms are a bit on the small side.
