This is now a Four Points by Sheraton. Opened two weeks ago, and obviously still undergoing renovations from all the pictures/frames in the stairwells and such. I assume only some of the rooms are open at this point.
Price was very good for the area. Location is not, a bit far away from everything really, and not in a great area. Parking is free and easy at this point, but there probably aren't that many people in the hotel honestly.
I was only a few doors down the corridor but it stretched on a long ways. Kinda like one of those Vegas hotels. Ice machine halfway down.
Nicely renovated rooms, typical Four Points. Big flat screen. Nice beds. Oddly the bedside table had TWO power strips attached to it, which is fabulous, but there was only one outlet on the desk for your laptop. A bit weird.
I had no problems with noise. Wifi performance was GREAT (8mbps down AND up!), which was free and not password protected. Good coverage too. But then I was close to the lobby, so YMMV.
They're still working out some things. The door handle to my room for example was apparently installed upside down and won't open the door unless you pull it up, not down. I ordered room service and the guy I spoke to seemed to be unclear on what he was supposed to do. Also the order never arrived.
Front desk staff jovial and helpful.
There is a microwave next to the front desk, and a small fridge with various items you can purchase and reheat if you want to keep things cheap. A nice option.
Lobby is nice enough for a cheap hotel. No issues.
Weird thermostat. Weird boxes in cubby holes instead of drawers solution to storing your dirty clothes. Very odd choice.
Windows have blackout curtains.
