We stayed here because we were guests at a wedding. The rooms were disappointing. The bathroom is so small you had barely a counter to rest a toothbrush on, the tub/shower was small and cramped, and the toilet ran off and on the whole night! We notified the front desk of this problem when we arrived, but nothing was done.... More

This is crazy. There is a jackhammer in the building going on past 8pm. Not only is it loud but each room shakes. I made the mistake of staying here 5+years ago and they were doing renovations then with the same issue. Bottom line is that it is an old building and while the rooms may have some updates because...

Great place to stay. It's right downtown, close to plenty of restaurants and activities. Stayed on the executive Level, which has plenty of perks, such as an Executive Lounge, where they have complementary breakfast, ordure's, including hot, for sale wine and beer, although it is complementary during certain hours. They also have desert. There is also commentary water and soft... More

There are many nice things about this hotel. It has a great location and the rooms are quite attractive. Unfortunately, the sound proofing is very inadequate. We had two miserable nights here because of noisy neighbors. We'll avoid staying here in the future.

Hello Larry P, Thank you for the review, and I do understand that soundproofing is an issue at our hotel. We are an older building, and if noisy neighbors are a huge issue we do try to take care of that by asking them to respect the other guests. Unfortunately that is the best we can do at this time....

Nice place in a good central location, we were at a trade show in the convention center, less than a 15 minute walk, so excellent for that application. Rooms were clean, TV was clear and the bathrooms were good, fresh towels everyday, so staff, if you're reading that's good stuff. Parking was so-so, but of a pain with the construction,... More
