I've stayed there several times on business, and the staff especially Lynnae in guest services is the best! She's very friendly, funny and knows the local area. She can share the better restaurants, and attractions in the area.

The staff was very helpful. The room was clean with the exception the bed pillows smelled like someone slept on them. Disgusting. The location was excellent for attending the game. The breakfast was very good. It would had been a good expected who wants to sleep on that. Ugh.
