If you don't have other options in the area, stay at this hotel. We stayed as part of a sports tournament and were forced to stay at this hotel as part of playing in the tournament (teams are assigned to "partner" hotels). The biggest problem is that the facility is outdated. There are 3 elevators for 18 floors! There is always a long wait for the elevator and the elevators are TINY. Rooms are small (had a 2 double) with our 2 kids. Partial updates have been made to rooms including HDTV and dark wood headboards which are nice. However, other areas are showing age, the wallpaper, paint, carpet, and bathroom. The shower head is extremely low. I am 5'11" and my nose touched the end of the shower head, I had to duck to wash my hair. One day, no towels were left for our room. We had to call the desk twice before we finally received towels an hour later. As for the Starbucks, they do not accept coupons from the Starbucks brand. We had bags from brewing Starbucks at home which are good for a free tall brewed coffee. They refused to accept the bag and explained that since they are contracted through the hotel and are not a direct Starbucks they do not accept deals. Wifi in rooms costs $13 per day. Really? In 2012 you are still charging for wifi that is silly and that alone would have us stay at another property if we could do so. When we checked in, they had us checking in the night prior - we had called to confirm that we would be checking in the day after most of our team due to our schedule. All items were taken care of in the end, so our stay was acceptable but we would never choose to stay here if we could select a different team hotel.
We did have friends on another team who were placed on the 3rd floor where the HVAC system broke and the temperature was 86 degrees on the floor. They were sweating from the walk to the room. Went to the desk to ask for a floor change and they were told the hotel could not help, they would have to stay in the assigned room. They checked out immediately and changed to a better hotel.
