Stayed in this hotel as part of a convention. Two of the elevators kept breaking down during our stay. They had two conventions in the hotel at one time.
I found the hotel a little run down. Ripped rug, and wallpaper in our room. Safety hazard with the fridge under sink and cord plugged in next to sink. Room was clean and beds are super comfortable but the pillows were flat. The service/housekeeper area on our floor was filthy and the staff kept the door open for all guest to see.
Parking is in the municipal lots on both sides of the hotel. Pool area was nice but you got to carry your chair out to the outside deck if you want to be outside and catch some sun. This hotel does have coin operated washer dryer - which is great.
Free wifi in the lobby, lounge and convention center was intermittent. No free wifi in rooms.
We tried to order room service one night but nobody answered the phone, we walk down to Shula steakhouse (way overpriced for the quality of food) and got it to take out. From then on we didn't eat at the hotel, there are enough great local places nearby to satisfy.
This hotel is downtown and on weekends the surrounding area is a ghost town. The smaller restaurants open on weekdays.
It is an easy walk to the light rail, McArthur mall, USS Wisconsin and the waterfront area with ferry access to Portsmoth. Across the street is a great breakfast place D'egg. Granby St is the street with a lot of restaurant offerings and is a short walk. Brick house diner ( mon-fri) on St. Paul's is another great breakfast spot or Bean There coffee shop. Try the 3 way cafe for unique lunch, on Plume St.
