Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was told when checking out that I only paid half of what I was supposed to. After looking for the receipt in my emails I saw not only had I already paid in full a week before but they charged me an extra $150. Also almost every staff member we encountered our whole stay was rude. I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me

The location is such that it is in an area of the city that is suffering. That being said the upper peace garden area is beautiful as is the smudge room.
