"... I have stated at this hotel for years! It's been okay, but never really great until now! They have redesigned the hotel, cleaned it up and I love it. The rooms look so awesome, new floors, new furniture, just about new everything. The staff is still just as great ... Management spoke to you when you said hello, and I even got more than 1 email after check out to see how my stay was. Not sure where all the changes came from but I love them."
