I spent 2 nights in this hotel as part of a group of 27. I checked the room as I always do and found no insects. My room was a little dark and cramped but still comfortable. Bathroom was well laid out and shower pressure/temperature were perfect. Unfortunately, newly laid carpeting off-gassed in both my 10th floor room and in... More

The hotel does all that is supposed to do: clean, comfortable and with good service delivery. The room was nice and big, and although there was a storm outside I slept like a baby. The only need for improvement I saw was a need to update their look & feel. The lobby and lounge areas are delicious but the rooms... More

A group of us stayed here in October. The hotel is quite nice with a competent and professional desk staff, although they don't often answer phone calls from the rooms. There are two computers for guests use in the lobby. There is also a bar in the lobby that looks to be just for show because there is another, much... More

After reading other reviews I had some concerns but now that my stay at this hotel is over, I really don't understand some of the issues. For starters, the 4 elevators work perfectly, don' t understand the complaints about waiting a long time for them. Cleanliness: spotless, both in the room and public areas. Anyway, the best thing about this... More
