Nice Hotel once you get checked in

It was great once we got checked in. There was trouble with then accepting the bidded price, or they said [...] hadn't paid them yet and it had been 2 months that it came out of our credit card.Airport shuttle was pretty tacky that the Hotel uses.

Beyond the Norm

Hotel was clean,friendly and very helpful. Staff at the front desk had good humor and housekeeping went above the norm to make my stay comfortable. Amazing customer service, I will be using many of my encounters with this staff as examples while teaching my own staff what good service looks like.

FBX Hotel

Nice Hotel, however, no printer available from business center or front desk for business billing needs. Is a necessity while traveling and determination in selecting hotel. Also, would have booked 10 day stay instead of two day stay if cancellation penalty was not so severe -total forfeit of remaining booking if plans changed after check in.
