I was pleased with my stay at the University Square Hotel. I booked it via Priceline for a really good rate. When I checked in, I asked for a room in the quiet zone, if they had one, and was given a top-floor room in the Brittany building. The room was definitely quiet and very comfortable. The furnishings, linens and towels were serviceable and some things were shabbier than others--but for the price I paid, I was willing to overlook a frayed towel or blanket. The room and bathroom were both clean, and although older, pretty well maintained. The room seemed larger than usual. The double Speakman shower heads were heavenly. The bed was comfortable and there were lots of pillows. A highlight of my room was having not one, but two windows that opened! It was very nice to have a fresh breeze in my room. Breakfast was pretty good, and like everywhere else, it gets crowded at times. But, there was always enough food. The only issue I saw with this property is in its layout. It can be hard to find parking by the building you're staying in. I didn't get a chance to try any of the restaurants nearby, but there are lots of options, especially on Shaw (there's a Marie Callenderrs right next door). As a female traveling alone, I am always concerned about my safety, but had no problems with security at this hotel. The property is close to the airport, too, about a 10-minute drive, all suface streets. I would stay here again.
