    Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Some problems connecting to internet required tech assistance by phone, but front desk clerk was able to successfully resolve issue. Breakfast buffet was excellent and well stocked. Overall, hotel and staff were pleasant and met or exceeded our expectations.
