After reading MANY many reviews, good and bad, my husband and I decided to take a chance and stay at this hotel, in the area for a wedding. Our room was fantastic! (King, Executive Room - practically a suite) Must have been recently remodeled, an almost double sized room on the 10th floor - with a wall of windows, (you could even see the lake), new carpet, freshly updated bedding and drapes, good sized flat screen tv.... comfortable and clean. We found a great rate online, and for the money, especially in an area where most rooms are about twice the price - we were very happy with the accommodations. It was very convenient for walking from the wedding and the after wedding continuation at area bars.
Some reviews mentioned strange smells, and old dated decor in the halls... well it is an old hotel, and that is what the lobby and halls smell like and look like. No big deal, you don't sleep in the hall! Some complained about loud environment/ sounds, well, we didn't experience that - perhaps because we were high up from the street and not at the end of the building closest to the tracks. Housekeeping DID knock on the door early for us(8:00'15) as we had wanted to sleep in, but that was our fault for not putting the do not disturb sign up. All in all, we would stay again if we needed a place in that area, and could book a similar room for the same price ($101. including tax!). We were not dissappointed. I recommend giving this place a try - but hunt online for the best deal, and make sure to VERIFY through the online service - directly to the hotel management - that they will actually have that room type available - that is what we did after all the other reviewer comments, and we had no problem with our room, however, for a second reservation (for my parents) we forgot to call, and their room was downgraded as the hotel said they "overbooked"- Fortunately, they didn't mind - and their room was just as nice, just a regular sized room. They also received prompt help when they called for assistance with something in their room.
