8.0 Very good
This is a very nice hotel. I stayed in it years ago and I thought it was a bit shabby then, but it has been updated and the room and facilities were really very nice. I just had a couple of somewhat minor complaints. My room was fairly clean, but not completely clean. There was some dirt on the carpet. One of the sliding closet doors was off its track. But the bed was clean and comfortable. The hotel is a little weird, since there are these inner courtyards and half the rooms only lookout over the inner (and interior) courtyards. So the whole feeling is a little claustrophobic. One last little ding is that I like to stay at hotels that provide a free breakfast and this is not one of them. But I knew that going in.
