Room had a very unpleasant odor. The mattresses were so hard as were the pillows that I could not sleep. I would expect a room that cost $154/night to be in better shape than this one was.

First, I could not get to the location for 38 minutes because I was held up by a train. This location was next to a truck stop loaded with trucks and buses. At 5:00AM a train whistle went off and woke me up. Ceiling tile in the bathroom had mildew on it. Toilette took a couple of flushes to work.
