Great time with Great Staff

For us it was great. We could walk to many places to eat, but the hotel food was great. We needed help for a party we planed for our granddaughter. The hotel staff supplied us with pies and other things we needed. For cakes we wanted they found a near by bakery for us to use. They could not have been more helpful. They really helped this trip to be what it was. M. Sutton, Dallas,Tx

Great Staff! Ok Location

Was here on business for one night and have to say the staff was exceptional! Not only do they provide free shuttle service to major attractions in the city but also helped on locating a lost item for me.
