8.5Very good
Anonymous, Mar. 2016

Pros. As usual the breakfast was delicious. Fresh with a great variety. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Staff was friendly. We have stayed here twice now. First time we stayed in a King Suite, this time was a room with two queens (all that was available...we actually paid the same price for both...a week apart). We would definitely recommend the suite. They are at the ends of the hall. More relaxing and less noise from the hallways, not to mention twice the size.

Cons. We were put in a room by the elevator...as in our headboards shared a wall with the elevators. All day and night we heard the elevators going up and down. It wasn't a huge issue, but definitely noticeable and at times frustrating. Being by the elevator also allowed for much more noise from other guests as they got off the elevators to go to their rooms.
