The parking to check in is 1 spot on a busy street with no other street parking. I picked the place due to price and expected to pay to park, just don't plan on using the car once you park since you have to pull a ticket every time you leave if you park across the street. Not hotels fault... More

Stayed two nights at Thanksgiving and service was great. Not sure how but got a sweet deal on a room with a kitchenette. Breakfast was above average as free breakfasts go with several fresh and hot offerings.. The attendant at breakfast hovered a bit and reminded folks to use the tongs, but everything was quickly replenished and cleaned up so... More

Decent and well sized rooms with reasonable prices. Bed is comfortable and the rooms are clean. The hotel is conveniently located downtown and close to everything. The breakfast could be better but honestly the hotel covers your basic needs very well.

Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, comfortable room. Right across the street from convention center. Walking distance to everything downtown. Only concerns: paper thin walls . Security call at 1:30 am to deal with our of control 20 something's. (Security was efficient in dealing.) The price on two nights was more than double the standard rate.

Staff at front desk and porter/doorman were all friendly and helpful. The pool was chilly but the kids didn't mind so much. The hot tub was nice. Breakfast had a good variety for everyone and complimentary continental breakfast in room could work out great for some. I was just a mile from work so this locatoin was great. The room... More

I thought the bed was very comfortable too. Parking is extremely limited on the property but there's a public parking garage right across the street that was fine.... More
