Stayed for a couple days after Xmas. Had a lovely room on the 9th floor, in the back so it was quiet. I had a large living space and a large bed in an alcove. There was a dark blackout curtain and a mesh-like one as well. Problem was the mesh ones also blocked the flow of air from the heater/AC. I had eastern windows which was perfect for me as I like to rise early. Some of the pictures had odd scratches, both inside the room and in the hallways. One of the elevators had some panels that were coming loose. The restaurant was adequate and inexpensive, and was ok for a quick bite. One night I had the quesadilla which was just the right size for me and came with 3 sides: guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. (The burger is inexplicably 1/2 pound which no human should ever eat. Maybe good for a share.) I also ate breakfast here twice. The first day I got scrambled eggs with sausage which were warm, at best. The second day I opted for the bacon, which was very thin and not good quality. I also asked for an extra slice of toast instead of the potatoes, which are chunked and not overly cooked, but didn't get it so I had to ask again. As I am not one to waste food, it was a bit disappointing. The staff, however, is GREAT. Really great! Everyone is super friendly and eager to give advise and assistance. My request for a 1pm instead of 12 noon checkout was met with a "no problem" attitude. I would definitely stay here again as it was a very economical stay, great location, and great furnishings. I recommend it if your not overly fussy.
