Overall it is a very nice hotel, but a few things need to be addressed. The windows need to be thoroughly dusted and cleaned. They were filthy! They need to improve their pillows and add pillow tops to the mattresses. Nice down pillows or down like pillows and mattresses toppers would take the hotel to another level. The toilet seat was also burnt, damaged and discolored. It really was not appealing to use. It needs to be replaced.
