Great first impression from check-in to the lobby decor with gas fireplaces to the friendly staff and our room which was upgraded to an Executive Suite. Room was clean with all the amenities you need for a short stay. Only complaint would be that despite calling reception for help with setting the thermostat for the room and following their instructions, the room was cold (for our liking) and would not heat up.
