    It was well decorated and very clean. The bed was soooo cozy and so were the robes! It had a great blowdryer and a steamer instead of an iron. My only complaint is the $16 per day charge for amenities. Which included and espresso machine in the room and bottles of travel size Fiji water, not worth $16 per day.
