This hotel is clean and modern. The restaurant food is excellent. I especially liked the lasagna. The hotel is dead during the weekend and the staff is not as knowledgeable as the weekday staff. I liked that it wAs connected to the mall and we could go to the grocery and drug store. The location is bad because the highway is closed and you have to drive through the CBD to get here.
