Great for a tennis tournament stop over!
The space was great, and a lot of room features were well maintained. The bathroom was very comfortable, easy access, and no problems with the shower pressure or temperature. I really liked the free[More] laundry facility and the layout of the room. The only issues I had was a faint smell of tobacco use, the bed was a little firm for my taste, and a couple of the pillows had a sweaty odor to them (but I had a couple that were OK).[Less]
Great room will be back! Awesome bed and the room was huge[Less]
