Marvin is fabulous! He was very friendly and always remembered us! Rooms were clean! This is requiring me to write 200 characters so I’m just filling up space now because all I wanted to say was Marvin was great!

We stayed here for a wedding recently. First, the positives: the front desk service agent was quite friendly once we got to him. There was a line of about 3-4 people in front of us, with two agents working, and our wait was around 20 minutes. The connected bar was probably the best part of the whole stay. Great service and selection, great setup, a great place to hang out. The Average: the room itself was pretty average. The lighting int he bathroom was quite dim. The parking was a little bit tough, there was a small parking lot, and an even smaller parking garage. I found one spot in the garage, I don't know what my options would have been without it. I can't speak too much on location, as we utilized the shuttle, which was staffed by a very friendly gentleman who accomodated us well. Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again, but it wouldn't be catastrophic if I had to.

The staff here are always friendly and helpful. Specifically Marvin at check in/front desk is superb. He is efficient, friendly and in good spirits. Mary, who does housekeeping on the ninth floor and sometimes eighth floor is tremendous. What a friendly, caring person. I also appreciate the staff in the restaurant for breakfast. I stay at this hotel often and a never disappointed.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Mary cleaned my room every day. But more importantly than just doing her job, she always took the time to say hello and have a short exchange. That human interaction no matter where I go is always appreciated. I'd also like to thank the gentlemen at the front desk. Marvin exemplifies everything you want when greeting people and looking after them. He makes you feel like a friend and that nothing is too much trouble - even after the numerous times I'd lost my key card, or left it in my room. Never an issue. The staff here are incredibly personable and that, in my opinion, is more important than anything I can say about the location, or the amenities. Just in case you're wondering, I have nothing negative to say .
