    The hotel is great. Staff is great but they are really short staffed. It took close to two hours to get air conditioning issue fixed. Finally they had to move us to another room which was kind of an upgrade. But then they had no other choice. We were sweating in the first room they allocated us.

    Stayed 2 nights in Jan. 2020
