I would rate this a 2.5. Stayed here two times on Business trips, 3 nights each. The hotel is modern looking and the rooms are good size. The staff was friendly but one issue we had was that 3 of the people I was traveling with had their rooms moved with out asking them. I have never seen this happen and I would have been upset if it happen to me and they moved all my things with out telling me or letting me do it myself. The room I had during my first stay was okay, had a weird smell and old TV. The internet is so slow it is almost unusable. My second stay I had a room on the 7th floor. The room was much nicer with a large flat screen TV. When packing up for my last night I saw a big bug in the closet, I think it was a cock-roach but I'm not 100% sure. I made sure to check all my stuff when I left to make sure none were in my baggage. I ate in the restaurant twice and both times is was gross. One night I had a chicken breast and it was almost 100% fat. Second time I had some chicken roll thing and could not eat it. They list pizza but was told they don't make it anymore. On the 2nd floor they have a seedy karaoke bar where you can pay to "sit" with woman dressed as hookers. Kind of tells you what this hotel is all about I guess. The problem is that if I come here again I most likely with stay here, I did not see anything better around this area.
