My husband and I recently stayed here for a weekend geteaway. Here are the things I think you would like to know:
*Hotel location is great. You can walk all over the city from here.
*Parking is very convenient. You do have to pay but the lot is a few steps from the hotel and you are given a pass so only hotel customers park here
*Hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating
*The hotel is in an older, and therefore achitecturally intesteresting building, but it has been updated
*The rooms are modern and most are spacious
*The breakfast was very good with a lot of choices
*You wont have much control over the termperature in your room, despite and in-Room thermostadt. The building is older and so is the heating/cooling system. Our room was so hot we had to change. We were shown several other rooms before we chose one solely on the termperature. Hotel staff was extremely friendly throughout this.
*The Associated parking lot isnt huge so be prepared to park and leave your car. Coming in late is challenging.
*Also with parking the spots are very tight. If you have a large vehicle, it wont likely fit in this lot.
*The shuttle to the Casino is kind of a joke, though this isnt the hotels fault. It seems that this hotel is one of the first stops on the shuttle route so the shuttle drivers often Speed past the hotel. the first night we waited outside and the shuttle driver sped right past us.We were able to use it the next night, but the driver almost drove past then also.
