At a glance, the hotel and rooms overall look nice. The rooms are clean and large. However, when staying there, you'll notice some issues that a hotel like this should not have. First of all, the wifi is basically non-existent. It may be better if you're closer to the lobby, but from our room, the wifi was basically not usable at all. You needed to have a laptop plugged into an ethernet cord just to get a decent internet connection here. Also, the heater in the room didn't really work well. It was running the entire evening, night, and until the next morning. It didn't start actually heating up the room until about 6:00am. Finally, I had requested a late checkout (1:00pm) the day before, vs. their usual checkout time of 12:00 non. However, at 11:00am, housekeeping knocked and asked when we were leaving. When we said we had a late checking, housekeeping said, "so... you're checking out at noon?" Really, I don't like being rushed out of the hotel even before the checkout time. Still, the front desk staff gave us a huge room and the room still looked nice and clean, so I'll give the hotel 3 stars.
