I booked this hotel through Priceline a couple months before my stay, and I originally made the reservation for 2 rooms. The other couple that my wife and I were traveling with could not make it because of Hurricane Sandy, so I was worried that I would not get a refund since made the reservation through Priceline. I worked with Bill at the hotel and he was very accomadating to my request, and said to call Priceline and have them call him at the hotel and he would give them authority to cancel the one room. This all worked out, and Priceline canceled the one room and gave a refund. Without Bill this would not have happened. He also honored my request for a quiet room away from the elevators and ice machine.
Re: the hotel - I was not sure what to expect since there are some negative reviews, but we were very pleased with the hotel from the check-in (checked in 3 hour early!!), to the room (clean and spacious), to the location (5 minute walk to the Green T line!). I am not sure what people expect when booking a hotel that is less expensive than the downtown hotels that cost 2 to 3 times as much, but for what we paid and got, it was worth every penny! My only regret is not parking in the garage next to the hotel - instead I parked at Woodland station and came in, but I would have rather had car there then deal with train back to my car at end of the trip. If traveling on the weekend, don't be afraid to bring car to the garage - it was not that busy on Saturday or Sunday.
Another cool thing is the approximity to a quick breakfast (DD, McD, Brueggers) all right there!
