Such a great experience at this hotel. Was visiting for a football game and everyone was so friendly and nice. Happy Hour was offered on Friday night with apps and beer/wine. Saturday (Game Day) they offered mimosas and bloody marys. The front desk was helpful when anything was needed. Maurice (the maitenance man) even set up cornhole boards for us... More

The staff here are very nice and helpful. The rooms are a good size, the amenities are good, coffee, frige, microwave. The beds are comfortable. It's in a great location, right down town and near everything. It's walking distance to restaurants and shops. The only negative was the air conditioner. It was very loud and constant.

Stayed here while on a work trip. Hotel was clean and the front desk girl was unbelievably hospitable and kind! The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Would stay again. Location was good and is walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. I would recommend this hotel to anyone

I stayed here whilst travelling with family (spread over two rooms). The room was clean with a large bed. The AC was deeply irritating (had to unplug the thing in the end). The staff were very friendly and helped out with storing cool bags and in recommending a local place to eat. It also seemed a little pricier than it... More

I've stayed at this property twice in recent weeks - both times for several days at a time. Consequently, this review is a compilation; curiously, both stays differed very little. The staff is excellent. Housekeeping was always pleasant, maintenance was on-the-ball and very helpful. Front desk staff was kind and focused. And the bistro staff was truly exceptional. Management is... More

Two years ago this hotel was remodeled to create an airier lobby with adjoining Starbuck’s bistro. These changes have definitely improved the experience for the overnight visitor. The lobby ceilings are high. There is plenty of natural light now. There is a wall mounted wide screen adjacent to the lobby which displays weather and traffic. The spacious Starbuck’s bistro offers... More

From my check-in experience (Thanks, Ashley!) to excellent service in the Cafe, to the best housekeeper ever (Terry), to the General Manager (so sorry, did not get her name, blonde, friendly and oh-so conscientious), the staff at this hotel are top-notch.

Although my room was not ready at normal checkin time, it was worth the wait. It was very clean and appropriately decorated with new looking paint, wallpaper, and bed linens. The bed had several pillows of differing firmnesses so I was able to find a couple that were just perfect for me. The bed was heavenly--so wonderful that I slept... More

Booked a room for 1 night. Noisy HVAC unit. Worst was the breakfast. Ordered 4 cooked breakfasts, coffees and juice which at $60 was bad enough but they brought the wrong food twice, had to recheck my bill 3 times and the final meal was delivered 55 minutes after we ordered. Lots of apologies because they were so "busy" but... More
