This is more like 2.5 stars...
First, before I write anything negative, I have to say that the staff here is great. Everyone from the cleaning staff to the event staff to the management was friendly and professional. This is a well-managed hotel, but unfortunately it is in desperate need of a makeover - interior and exterior.
First, the outside of the hotel is very, very dated giving a poor first impression. The interior common area spaces are fine, but step into the elevator which looks like a time machine from 1987, and then the rooms...oh the rooms. Drab green carpets, furniture that needs updating, wrinkled duvet.
Finally it is right next to the train tracks. A freight train came by at 2 a.m. and blared its whistle and horn for 10 minutes straight. It was kind of surreal.
If this hotel was demolished, rebuilt somewhere else, and then they rehired every single staff member, I'd stay here again.
