The registration desk in not where you would expect,...

Everything was wonderful! Clean, friendly and accommodating. The shuttle drivers, namely Eric, Bob and Lamont, were the best! Super friendly and always on time with a smile. Everyone was helpful and the morning breakfast had many options. I highly recommend this hotel!

There's is no available free parking. Parking is $15 and in a connected parking garage that won't fit larger vehicles. Security on first floor advised not to park on the street as the area wasn't safe and vehicles are often broken into. The area overall didn't feel like a safe environment. The hotel is under construction for renovations. Plastic and...

Very loud and noisy. I can hear clearly the conversation from the next door neighbor. They were chatting late into the night, after midnight. There was also a high pitch noise non-stop somewhere. The front desk staff were professional and polite. Room looks clean and spacious.
