Normally I don't stay at non-franchised hotels but we booked this at the last minute thru Priceline. To me it seemed that the hotel was in an odd location and kind of hard to get to but there were other hotels in the same area. I read in previous reviews that there was some remodeling going on so we knew to expect that but it seems like there are only 4-5 guys working on it so it seems a little slow.
What little time we spent in the lobby it seemed a little bland, but that might be due to the remodeling going on. The staff was friendly and answered our questions about getting downtown. The only shuttle they have only runs to the airport. And a taxi ride is $25 one way. Parking Downtown is $10 - $20 depending where you park. Cheaper than a cab.
The room was OK, about what I expected. Nothing fancy.
They offer free breakfastin the morning but the hours they served it seemed a little off. During the week it was 6 - 9 and on weekend it was to 10. Since we had late nights we slept in and were unabele to get the breakfast. I would have liked to have seen it run a little later. They also serve free drinks at night but we were busy downtown both nights when it was going on.
