Fair 4.0
Great hotel, BUT construction beside hotel
Everything was great except for the construction beside the hotel. We were assured that this would not interrupt our stay, however at 6am when we were jolted out of bed, we realized this was not true. Make sure to get a room on the opposite side of the construction site! Thankful the manager was able to rectify the situation.

Not a good experience.
It was a nice hotel but with the construction it was very noisy they were hammering right above us at 8 am and there’s also no amenities, won’t stay here again when I told them about the hammering above at an early hour they didn’t seem too concerned and did nothing about it.

I would recommend to a friend!
Super nice hotel! The rooms are gorgeous, spacious, and well kept. The beds are extremely comfy. The service we received was outstanding as they were always willing to help and make sure our stay was relaxing. Loved the area that this hotel is located in.
