    The room was very comfortable and the staff were exceedingly courteous, answering all my questions. I felt secure when I saw that my room’s hallway was beyond an extra door that required my key card to enter. Breakfast was delicious although I wish there were a few more options at the restaurant. The check in and check out processes were very simple and I enjoyed the amenities in the room.

    Some of the spaces felt rather cramped - the two elevators were alarmingly small and only able to carry a handful of people at a time. The fact there were only two made using them long and tedious. I also found the bathroom to be smaller than I expected. Not unusable, but more cramped than I would expect for a room that cost as much as it did. Additionally, while I found the room comfortable, I thought the black and white color scheme was a bit drab.

    The staff was super nice and helpful. The building was always smelling nice and the amenities were good as a well.

    The fact that the executive floor had a lounge but no actual complementary breakfast was a downside.

    Confortable and some staff in the front desk.

    Breakfast . I have to seat by my self. Ask for everything single detail and hotel charge to my bank more than expected. Supposed breakfast was included but I ended paying more for one night .
