8/10 Very good

Older hotel with nice upgrades in progress. Nice location 10 minute walk to city market. Parking was expensive at the hotel with little parking anywhere around.

Not a four star hotel and not worth the price
People at front desk weren't friendly, hotel was loud, pipes in the wall made sounds all of the time, mattress was lumpy. Wasn't worth 350.00 at time and definitely wasn't a 4 star hotel, and I never complain. Will never stay there again.

6/10 Good

Overall the hotel was great, it was with sadness I booked this stay for our 31st wedding anniversary, we booked a poolside room and upon check in they told me that they had overbooked the room and could only off er me a double bed poolside room, or a 12th floor room with a balcony. Ok we would take the balcony thinking it would be a beautiful upgrade. Nope the balcony overlooked a building and its roof top.
