The room had been updated and was great. the only real complaint would be the air conditioner. Very noisey and unable to get the temp right. The towels could do with an upgrade since they were charging top dollar for the room. the valet parking was a wait as they only had one staff member bringing the cars up. Otherwise all was good.
