I really liked my hotel room and it's amenities. The shower had a double showerhead which is handy and the AC was easy to work in the room. The room was a perfect size for what I needed. My only suggestions would be more lighting in the bathroom as it was very dark when I took my shower and I had all the lights on. As well, need to change the location of the TV as it was next to my bed and not in front and you tend to get neck strain if you're staying up watching late night TV (which I don't do at home!).
My biggest beef would have to be the extra charges upon checkout. I didn't notice it until after I did it but even a local call costs $2 with a per minute charge. Internet cost $11 a day which should be free as even the cheap hotels have it for free. Parking is $26 a night which I'm sure is standard for that area but it seemed to add a little more pain to the bill. Perhaps it would have been nice to be told that when booking but I got this hotel through Hotwire so I have no idea who's fault that would be. I would only not recommend this hotel to my friends as they wouldn't want to pay extra for all I listed above (maybe parking).
