Brenda is definitely an Asset to this hotel. She took care of me from the moment I walked through the door! She was very professional. answered all of my questions and concerns. each time she saw me in passing she made sure I was okay,and enjoying my stay. BRENDA definitely made me feel welcomed!!! Warm, welcoming, friendly and beyond helpful. To be honest she's the only reason I enjoyed my stay. If it wasn't for COVID I would have given her the biggest hug. Her personality is amazing. I truly appreciate customer eccentric people like Brenda and the Valet lady. I didn't get her name but I'll be back to show my appreciation for them both. As long as Brenda is here and helping me I'll be back. All 5 stars are for her. Read less

Even though everyone adhered to the social distancing protocols, they all still made us feel very welcome and cared for. Thank you! Read less
