My husband and I booked this hotel because it was close to a two-day event he needed to attend. I couldn't stay there any longer than that.
We were off to a rough start, with a group of us stranded in the lobby for 30 minutes waiting for someone to come and check us in. By the time we entered our room, we had just another 30 minutes to get ready and arrive at our destination. Our room was okay, but the air conditioner took a while to de-stuff the room and bring it to a comfortable temperature. I shouldn't be seeing hairs on my linens—very disgusting. No phone in our room, but a nice mini-fridge (finally, one big enough for a pizza box) and alarm clock, which we used to wake us. A nice coffee maker, but just one packet of coffee fixings, and my husband and I like to have two cups apiece. The lobby attendant was kind enough to give my husband two additional packets. One lamp, on my side of the bed. Hair dryer attached to the bathroom wall.
The shower was very nice, great water pressure and temperature. My bath filled up quickly, but bring your own plug if you want the water to stay there. I started out taking a bath, but ended up taking a shower after finding myself sitting in suds without water 20 minutes in.
There was no phone in our room, so bring your own in case of emergencies, and bring your laptop if you want free WiFi and are willing to put up with it cutting out every five minutes. The elevator is still broken, for the curious. Parking is teeny-tiny, but free. A mini store about one block over for necessities. I purchased water and juices, and the lady who ran it was sweet. The in-room toiletries are lovely (disposable shower cap, yay!), but scant (as in any room), so bring your own as we did. Bring your own towel as well. I'm still picking bits of cheap, white two-thread count towel off of my skin. This hotel is located in a busy area, so expect noise and undesirables, but our key-card activated room door was even too tough for us to open without nearly breaking it down, so I guess the bright side is that if you can't open it, then no one else will be able to.
Anyway, we had a nice, hot shower, a decent night's rest, and we weren't murdered in our sleep. Three stars.
