It was very comfortable and nice , however I was not aware when I booked that I would be charged for parking every night, I don’t feel anyone should pay to park at a hotel and in the past I have never had to pay for parking, it will certainly affect my decision in the future when I choose a hotel.

Contacted the front desk on day#2 to inquire about servicing the room to learn you have to request it other wise they wouldn’t do it. So I requested the service for day #3 but they never came to even change towels or provide more coffee. Very disappointed since this is my 3rd stay in this hotel. Not coming back sadly as I value my money very much and I expect respect and good service
