Really enjoy the stay, the only 2 thing I didn’t like was, the parking was $30 and they took out of my card $100 refundable deposit that they didn’t disclose online.

The room and location was great. I didn't know I had to pay for parking. I would not reserve a room at this hotel, because of the parking charge.
