"Served our purpose."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel was as pictured in on line photos. Team member at check in was pleasant and efficient, huge plus! Room and layout was nice but found cereal and other items underneath of sofa. (Apparently not vacuumed by housekeeping). If you stay with multiple parties, you will have to space out showers hot water runs out. Ended up getting a late check because we couldn't finish showers.
