Pros: Front Desk Agent, Pedro was awesome. Great customer service skills! Room has fridge, microwave, ironing board and wall fan. It was very clean and quiet location. Outlets are availble every corner so it's very convenient when your charging something. They offer room service for lunch and dinner.
Cons: I'm not sure if they have AC. Since they have a wall fan.

Pros: Staff was great, cleaning team was awesome
Cons: When I went to pay, I requested they split it between two cards. When they ran the first one, they said it didn't have enough on it (which was weird since I knew there was enough on it to cover the entire stay) so they had to run the full charge on my second card. When I checked my account later to see what was wrong with the first card, they had put a hold against it for the entire amount so I was out that money for my trip. As of now, that hold still hasn't been released so I feel like I paid twice as much as I should have. (I am assuming the hold will be released.. I won't be happy if it isn't!)

Pros:
Cons: We booked two rooms and got the confirmation by email from this hotel,but no room was available when arriving. We did not know what happened. The manage's attitude was bad and not any compensation for us.
