A cool place which will leave you nostalgic if not. A serene and commendable place like Atlantic Premier Hotel will make you feel at home. Not just the name, the room services, the playgrounds, the warm customer services, buffet and restaurant serves et all are all worth experiencing for anyone who wishes to affirm to my words that indeed my city has the best.
