I stayed at the extended stay for one week during a business trip. While the rooms are OK (clean, spacious) this hotel is kind of scary (at least for me-a single woman traveller); the pictures are deluding because the hotel is in an industrial area with absolutely nothing to do; the guests are weird, I hardly saw any families or children, but bumped into a lot of "regulars" carrying bags heavy with alcohol and I suspect there is some drug dealing too (judging by the some of the characters I saw entering and leaving the hotel). I asked my company to move me in a different hotel because I felt unsafe and shortly after I found out that this hotel was involved in a shooting earlier this year (why wasn't I surprised)? The extended stay hotel policy is to clean the room only once a week, which for me I felt it was too much, the staff is almost never there (and they don't even have a map of the area, nor can they give any advice on attractions, things to do, etc.), the breakfast is a joke (almost nothing to choose from- I only grabbed coffee anyway and bought my breakfast at a whole foods nearby) and the pool looked disgusting - I didn't even dare use it. Overall, this is a relatively new hotel and maybe it was just my bad luck to be there at the same time as many "interesting" other tourists, but I would definitely not go there again!
