Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It was quiet on arrival which was nice and it was not overcrowded like I had hoped so that was really good. The substitution grab and go was not a good sub for breakfast; you need to put more in the bag because we chose your hotel for the breakfast. I complained to the front desk about noisy hotel guests 12:40a.m. - 1:40a.m. on second floor which interrupted my sleep and they said and did nothing so I was disappointed in their response. I am a Marriott Bonvoy member so I expected a better response that I did not get.
