Oddly, our family stayed in the same room as the other reviewer, 304. The bathrooms seemed to vent into the master bedroom and so the smell became overwhelming in the evening. At night I slept with Vicks vapor rub under my nose to drown out some smell.
We stayed there for one week and the smell never went away. The hotel was full. In the morning, because there was no toilet/shower usage, there would be no smell, but by 0830 to 0900 it would be in full swing. When we returned at 5:00 p.m. the smell would be slight but increase throughout the night. I finally took a towel, wetted it and placed it over the bathtub drain and the sink drain. I don't know if it helped.
Other than that the hotel has seen better days, but is well looked after. The staff is hard-working and helpful. Our shower door was broken so it only had one sliding door. The open half splashed water around the bathroom. Traffic noise was loud and we wore earplugs, but it is to be expected being downtown.
The people and food were the best parts.
