I stayed here as the renovations were wrapping up, as of mid-February floors 2-4 had been renovated and they were down to the first floor. I stayed on a Friday night and while the first floor wing was closed off and there was some construction equipment in the one part of the parking lot, but we didn't hear any noise whatsoever from construction and it was a total non-issue. Perhaps this was due to the fact it was a Friday night/Saturday morning.
I also noticed a sign upon check-in that they have a shuttle on weekdays, basically for business travelers that goes into "SoNo" in the evenings or anywhere within a couple miles. Nice that they do that, although that should be expected when the weekday rate is probably over double the AAA weekend rate.
The refresh was sorely needed as this hotel was stuck in the standard 90s Courtyard theme. New wallpaper and carpet in the hallways. The rooms have been painted, have accented wallpaper on the one wall, brand new carpet, new lamps/light fixtures, and new sofa. The furniture remains and was put in before the major work. Room even had that new smell to it. Some updated touches to the bathrooms as well.
The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is the AC unit wouldn't get cold enough, only down to 65 and the fan set on "high" hardly produced any airflow. We had to open the patio door to get it cold enough, that helped some. Also the wifi was painfully slow, a speed test showed a pathetic 1.5Mpbs, about the equivalent of EDGE(2G) speed. AT&T LTE cell service was hitting 45Mpbs. This was on a Saturday morning so it shouldn't have even been heavily utilized. Not a big deal for me, but it probably would be for some business travelers.
