I like the cost, the room. It is small, yet large enough for one person, or a few people. Make sure to check drawers, to make sure things aren't left behind. The room service people were nice.

I really like this place. I've stayed there twice before and will stay there again. People in other rooms are up early tho, fyi. And this last time one night my key didn't work and it took 10 min maybe to get someone to come let me in my - but I'll count that as a fluke. I def think it's worth staying here.
