No one (but another costumer) helped me carry my 3 heavy bagages to the lift. I even heard someone from the staff saying a very bad comment about another costumer who... More

At check in had to intial one rate for night one ($70, which I reserved at). Imagine my surprise when I checked out for day one that the rate was posted at $109 after I had to... More

No thrills, great, simple clean place I could call home for a week. All staff very nice, reasonable parking at $ 19 overnight and close proximity to everything. Housekeeping ladies also nice, especially the young European woman on 4th floor. Front desk European women also very good and the part I liked was, that they were nice to look at... More

Front desk guy, on a Friday night and Saturday morning was awesome, got us a "big" room (all quite small), top floor, street side. Don't do it if you are a light sleeper, especially on the weekend, VERY noisy. Only downside... More
