Overall I have no significant complaints other than the hot tub appeared to be permanently broken (hence they had a professional sign made saying it was closed). Given it was bad weather and the pool was outside, it would have been nice if they could have fixed the hot tub.
Overall the room was fine, if basic and the service we encountered was decent.
Had I not paid about the same money a month earlier for the Embassy Suites (I did both via Hotwire and both are rated 3 stars with them), I probably would feel better about this place, but the ES, while a tad more dated in decor, just gives you a whole lot more for your money (open bar at happy hour, free full breakfast including an omlette station, and a full suite as opposed to a small room).
It also didn't help that all of the milk (in single serve containers) was bad at the continental breakfast and the coffee urns were empty during our whole breakfast as well.
Lastly, the hotel is pushing the heck out of The Avengers movie (you see it everywhere including on the room keys), so naturally I assumed it was available as a pay-per-view. Got all excited and it was nowhere to be found, which of course begs the question "why promote something I can't purchase?"
