My husband and I chose this hotel for an extended stay based on reviews (the number one Tripadvisor reviewed hotel), location, price and availability of exercise room. We found the front office staff to be courteous an accommodating, the suite arrangement of two rooms and teo TVs very good and the breakfast adequate. The refrigerator and microwave worked fine.
That said, the hotel is looking a bit rundown and housekeeping is inconsistent. Some of the furniture in the common areas and elevator are stained and no matter what time of night or day the elevator carpet looked like it needed vacuuming. There is one very, very slow elevator for the entire hotel.
There were some small bits of carpet and lint on our floor; it took three days and as many requests of the front office for them to be vacuumed up. One day we had no washcloths, another day no hand towels. This straightened out after several days of requests.
The primary exercise machine was broken and was to be replaced; it was out of service during our entire two week stay.
Bottom line: we were very happy with the cost of the hotel and might stay again if we needed an extended time, but with adjusted expectation. That said, the number one rating is not currently accurate.
