    comfortable bed
    An overnight stay. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The only problem was the headboard from one of the bars was detached from the wall when we got to the room. Reported to this to cleaning staff and front desk personnel. all staff were quite friendly and accommodating.

    Overall had a great stay, service was very friendly. Room was nice and spacious, and great central location in the city. Only negatives were a noisy AC unit, and the bed was a bit uncomfortable we both woke up with sore backs. Otherwise great stay.
