We chose this hotel for the location to the Mall and museums. The location did not disappoint. And, around the corner are various coffee shops, banks, pub/bars and restaurants. This is important because the hotel wifi had a very weak signal so I would go to Starbucks to use their free wifi. When we inquired, the front desk had no explanation and offered to move us to another room. We decided not to change rooms because of the hassle. If hotels advertise free wifi, they should make sure it's adequate especially since this is in a business district. The wifi in the lobby and breakfast room was acceptable but not acceptable in our 4th floor annex room.
Housekeeping was inconsistent. We hung our towels on the rack (as instructed) the first night only to have them all replaced. On the 3rd night, we didn't think housekeeping had come by at 5pm because the beds weren't made. (Note that we put the beds together in a tidy fashion so they weren't a mess to begin with, but still.) It turns out they emptied the garbage cans and replaced the towels and that was it.
I concur with the other reviews that the kitchen sink is too small to do dishes. However, the kitchen was nicely appointed with a full size refrigerator with an ice maker, 2 burner electric stove and a large microwave. The kitchen could have been stocked with kitchen towels, however, as we had to use the bathroom towels.
The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful.
There is a computer and printer in the lobby which was helpful to print boarding passes.
On another note, I booked this hotel via their website 6 months prior. 2 months prior, I checked the website again and the rate had dropped $100/night. I'm glad I checked again as the original rate was very pricey.
