    We spent 2 nights here.Huge hotel in good position.The parking issue - $17 a night is a bit much and charging for wifi in the room too. The rooms are large, clean, beds comfortable, and staff friendly.

    Yes, there is construction going on. But honestly, we never heard them. We observed most of it in an adjacent building near guest rooms but far enough away that it was a non-issue.
