Got a great rate, property is a bit dated but overall very nice. TV in the room is one of those big Walmart old 300 pounders. Limited channel selection and reception and picture quality is very low standard for this type of property.
Parking IS the issue. Either you valet for $14.00 a day or pay $8.00 a day and park in the parking garage adjoining, no other options available. If you self park, it is a hike through the structure with your bags to the check out and elevator. Bar is comfortable and reasonably quiet. Noticed the channel selection in the bar flat screens far exceeded the availability and quality in the room. Also the valets do not overtly expect a tip but I felt compelled, even though I was in and out several times a day. Adds up after a week of staying there...so the value goes down because of the parking. Beds were OK but not high quality mattresses I have found in other Crowne Plazas in San Antonio and Dallas.
