We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. We would have appreciated a map of the hotel on the app. We got in late and circled the whole building looking for our room.

I really like the Hotel situates at a quiet and elegant environment, it is a good place for a short rest, however, if they have a receptionist for assistance, then it could be excellent.

We moved in to a room where the appliances,Ike the fridge and coffee machine was not working. We bought food for next day, which got split as no one came tkk on check it after we made callas ( caribou lodge) for this. Plus when to bathe amd there was no conditioner in the wall mount containers in the shower area. Plus I am Diabetic they’re was no supply of a sugar free option like : Stevia or Splenda to use in my coffee. I did call and made a not but was never provided one. In addition the balcony attached to my room was all dusty and dirty. My stay here for two days was very uncomfortable and felt no worth of my money spent.
