The price is fantastic. The rooms recently renovated -- well, a plasma screen TV added anyway. The main problem I have is that the rooms are dark and dated -- the dark orange wall does not help. I found the hotel depressing.
Lobby fixtures reminded me of a 1970s apartment building. Lights were out over the front desk and an emergency oxygen (?) bottle was propping the door to the manager's office open.
The gym appears to have been renovated and new machines added. That's a high point. The view out of the back of the tower rooms (the quiet side) was also bleak -- lots of parking lots and warehouses.
The area seems dangerous. I didn't feel safe walking to nearby restaurants. The restaurant on site is mediocre at best and the breakfast buffet was NOT on par with similar offerings by Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
I'm afraid that with a brand new Holiday Inn and a Hilton across the street I just can't recommend this one.
