First -The Good. Nice location, decent building and in a nice area. The room was fine.
Now the Mediocre.:1. TWENTY BUCKS a night to park!!! Use the street outside. It's just as safe-there is no security in their parking lot and they take no responsibility anyway.
2. When we checked in, two of the elevators were not working- seems the card reader thing that you HAVE to use if you want the elevator to work (VERY ANNOYING!!!), didn't work, so we wasted 10 mins getting to the room. Nice if the Front Desk had told us.
I got the feeling that the staff thought that they were still running a 5 star operation. They aren't. At best, it's a Three star unit. The prices quoted on their website is a joke. I paid 69 bucks...which is about right for the place.
I got 24hrs of free WiFi internet- I was only there a day, so it worked out OK.
