Stay and experience met expectations (single night stay/clean room - really a place to sleep) for what was described for a recently renovated property. Staff at front desk were professional and courteous.

We were there for a short time soe we did nto have much time to check out the ammenities but the breakfact and thr room were very nice. The only small negative about the room is the space between the foor of the bed and the furniture is tight.
