I picked the hotel for the price during our stay for the USA marathon weekend. It's a great place! Funky decor, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, great staff.... The complimentary breakfast was lacking a bit, just mostly breads and muffins... No eggs or pancakes or sausages but that was ok. Location was great!! Can walk to so many places...
One problem for me were two consistent sounds that never stopped.... One was like an idling truck outside, but that was very low hum. The other was a high pitch sound from closer inside the room. I believed it was coming from a room behind a locked door right next to the bed. The first night it kept me up from 2-4 in the morning (I'm a light sleeper). When I mentioned it to the front desk, they were very accommodating and moved us to another room. This one also had the locked door next to the bed but it was quieter, definitely.. further away from the noises. Could still hear the hum and the high pitch sound but at least they were subtle compared to before.. I guess the high pitch sound was not coming from the mysterious locked room inside the room..
The only other problem for me is the high price for valet... For that price I'd expect a car wash to come with it ;-).
Otherwise I would definitely stay here again... Its convenient and comfortable for the price... I will bring my dogs next time!!!
