The hotel is well located, has a lovely lobby/registration area, access to a pedestrian street for shopping. The rooms were nice and roomy. My only criticism is the bathrooms were a disappointment, cracked tile an moldy areas. They were not consistent with the rest of the hotel appearance. The staff at reception is not rude, but not friendly either, little eye contact. The servers at the buffet were very helpful and nice. I would stay there again.
