All you would expect from this brand hotel, great service, wonderful staff, etc. except for a few minor items and one major complaint.
1. The major complaint is the fire department is literally across the street. Great to know if we catch on fire, but terrible if you're trying to sleep! The sirens are loud of course, and the sound echos around the other buildings, which does not make for restful sleep. I am not a very light sleeper, but I was woken up four times my first night. I asked for a room on the other side of the building the next morning. They moved me without a problem, but the volume didn't diminish much and I was woken up three times the second night. Thankfully CVS is a short walk away, ear plugs allowed me to sleep uninterrupted the duration of my stay.
2. The beds are hard. Two rooms, four beds, none were comfy. They honestly felt like a $200 mattress with a $50 pillow top cover on top. Not what I was expecting for the price of the rooms.
3. TV was a flat panel, but very small, maybe 32"? I wasnt expecting a 55" but again, for the price of the room 42" would be more appropriate.
4. Rooms were nicely done, odd to see two full beds in each versus the traditional queens, ask for a king if you're coming with a significant other.
