I had an issue with my room. It wasn’t exactly setup with all the mentioned amenities, but the maintenance guy Edgar was able to promptly fix me up with a new room. Cheers to that guy who takes initiative.

Jennai at the front desk, was very accommodating and went out of her to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We also visited the WXYZ bar where Blair and Joe were very busy, but got to their customer's quickly and always have a smile on their faces.

The building is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are even better. Both the ladies at the service desk were extremely helpful with questions regarding the surrounding area. Rebecca helped us when we checked in and Johnea was a gem when we checked out. I would definitely stay again!
