The staff was extremely helpful and nice. I wish the kitchen stayed open later but they were very busy down there and there was a wedding there the next day.

I liked the proximity to an event I was attending on Sunday night. It was in walking distance. What was disappointing was their were stains on my bed sheet and the floor in the bathroom had some "stuff on it". The exterior of the hotel looks great, the lobby also very impressive , but once I got into the room, it was a letdown. I have a reservation to stay their again on 12/11/19 however I am rethinking that as I complete this feedback.
