1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently stayed here after staying a few days at the nearby Hilton and were very disappointed. The hotel was older, which is fine... However it was filthy. We needed 2 beds so we had to pay an up charge which would've been fine if the room was halfway decent. There was an old water bottle on the dresser from... More

Everything started out poorly. We checked in very late. I changed our checkout date and was told there would be a fee since it was less than 72 hours notice. I questioned her politely because the checkout date was more than 72 hours away. After she explained I acknowledged the fee. She then was in a sour mood and put... More

The hotel is well located, 10-15 min walk to convention center, gas lamp district, USS Midway, etc. The hotel is not new and it shows. My room was smelly in spite of several attempts to deodorize it. It is geared more towards the business traveler but internet access is expensive ($12.95/day). Breakfast is included but after 2-3 days of the... More
