This hotel does many things very well: quick service, great location, clean, reasonably priced. Free newspaper, wifi, coffee and water. The area has many restaurants and shops, the metro is very close.

I was a little worried because I got such a great deal on this room, so I was expecting to be disappointed. From the moment we arrived, I knew that would not be the case.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very accommodating... great welcoming check-in and everyone always had a cheery attitude... from the desk personnel, the bellmen, the chambermaids. The staff in the executive lounge on the 8th floor was amazing... thanks for the great service! Our room was excellent. The hotel shows some signs of wear but is generally... More

This is a fast-paced business hotel. Centrally located. Not necessarily a place for a romantic getaway, but well-run to get you in and out quickly to make sure you get to your business meetings on time!

This beautifully located hotel is a good choice if you can get a low rate and don't require much space. Most king bed rooms face a dark interior courtyard. The street facing rooms are more bright and pleasant, and not noisy.
