I only stayed here one night. First, the positives:
--room very clean
--nice front desk staff
--large lobby area for sitting, etc.
--wi-fi worked well
Now, the bad:
--not a ton of parking, and there were 2 air force trucks with trailers taking up most of the parking during my stay
--super thin walls - could hear the ppl next door talking loudly at 2am
--ice machine across the hall...dropped ice all night long
--bed hard as a rock
--housekeeping door directly across from my room and they started making lots of noise at an ungodly hour
--the AC was finicky - wouldn't always come on when it needed to and the room get really stuffy when it is off...then there is the terrible smell that comes from it when it is on
I was in room 316 - avoid this room to avoid all the noise issues in my review. I had asked to be away from the elevator, but that clearly did not work out so well for me. That being said, I suggest you try the same because you do NOT want to be near it, the ice machine or the housekeeping door.
You should also know that there is zero free coffee in the lobby, the coffee/bar/food area apparently closes before 11 pm. They do have a little snack pantry area where you can buy some packaged food stuffs, but that is it.
The hotel is close to an area where there is some restaurants, movie theater, Whole Foods, but not really close enough to walk.
Overall, the hotel was nice and would have gotten an excellent rating if it could have done it's one basic job - provide a place for me to get some sleep. The sleep I was able to get was minimal. So, you might luck out on your room or you might get as little sleep as I did.
