Pros: The awesome light-filled windows and wonderfully expansive views of the sunrise, lake, greenspace & Buckingham fountain!! Front Desk staff Jessica Burns was wonderfully welcoming and exceptionally responsive!! Manager Dusica Martic made this phenomenal room happen for me as former manager Amber Mansfield had done in times past. Great Thanks to all! Much Gratitude Overflowing as I celebrated my 70th Birthday, attended the Jazz Festival, the African Arts Festival and got a lot of serious work done in preparation for the new school year!

Pros: The location was great and room was very clean and the staff was great.
Cons: The room was pretty small and the bathroom door was a sliding door and didn't close all the way which was a little awkward. The shower looked great but the pressure was not good.
