3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I've stayed at this hotel for several months in 2014, once in 2015, and one night in 2016. The first time was great, well managed and great breakfast! Now, the place needs to remodel some rooms...musty smell when we walked in room on 5th floor, although once inside, the smell didn't linger. The tile in bathroom needs replacing and the... More

This is a nice hotel whose real strength is the staff. These guys are always right there to help with whatever you need. The breakfast is OK, especially if you get the cooked breakfast and I ate at the restaurant for the first time this trip. For the restaurant, the selection isn't huge, but they do everything right. The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend web conference and it was really nice. The lobby was very unique and they serve free breakfast in the morning. And not just bagels and pastries, a full cooked breakfast! The staff was also very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is clean and the staff is amazing. The atrium is so pretty. My only complaint would be the wifi. I was on the 6 th floor and could not get wifi in the bedroom. This was frustrating because I couldn't surf the Internet or check email in bed. I know, first world problem. Breakfast of eggs and bacon... More
