Room had no A/C, due to the fact that management decided to switch on the heat for winter (despite the fact that it was 72F/22C outside). Room was unbearably hot during the evening. Left with the choice of sweating all night or opening the window. If choosing the latter, one is greeted with loud noise from the highway, hungry hungry... More

A+ for effort from all of the wonderfully polite and welcoming students! They certainly try their very best to be hospitable! Rooms look like they've just been redone. Nice and clean. You can't really walk anywhere from this hotel. We didn't get a chance to use the athletic facility but it looks wonderful!!!!!!! Interesting place to stay!

A most comfortable room, excellent food and a superb staff - attentive, cheerful and extremely professional. This was remarkable given that most of them were trainees learning the art of hotel keeping.

This hotel is a part of the Valet hotel management school, which is across the way from the hotel. The students run all aspects of the hotel, the housekeeping, front desk, and restaurant. The food in the restaurant, even for a vegetarian (get the appetizer buffet option at dinner), was very good for breakfast and dinner. The staff was very... More

Arriving at midnight to find the hotel was kind of difficult, especially to find the main entrance to the hotel. Disappointed to see a small lobby, but at least checking-in was fast, and the front desk guy accompanied us to our room on the 4th floor. Helpful and accomodating at least. Large room with a marbled bathroom, and push-botton controlled... More

I'm definitely biased towards modern, stylish hotels over the more rustic ones and the Hotel Vatel didn't disappoint at all. Great lobby area and bar for hanging out. Nice, large room with a large bathroom, full shower and working climate control. My balcony overlooks downtown and is enclosed for privacy if I want. The wifi is very fast and strong... More

This hotel and restaurant are on a business school campus. Students serve you. If you have patience, you will eat an excellent meal. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staff was friendly and did their best to ensure you were satisfied.
