Avoid Room 217 if you stay here. There is a hotel uplight immediately in front of the window which casts "daylight" into your room from about 8pm -6:30am. It is also located immediately next to the staff laundry facility; this starts at 8am. Or maybe avoid all odd numbered room on 2nd floor.
I kept waking up every 2 hours because my body thought it was sunlight from behind the curtain. I woke up with a headache. The room has blackout curtains but to get the light out you must prop something against the curtain (laundry basket with gym bag on top). However, light shines out from the top. The curtain set in the living area cannot be sufficiently closed as the HVAC return is located adjacent and air suction does not allow. The problem in the bedroom can be corrected with a wood valance that would surround the top of the curtains. In the room you can clearly hear the "whirring" of the washers in the staff laundry area. It was only during business hours. I've stayed about 30 nights in hotels in 2013 and never had this issue before. It was like when Kramer on Seinfeld had the chicken shop move in next door!
All the good stuff people say is true. Elevators were quick, breakfast is above average, place is newer, room is updated, and more. I liked that there were two TV's and the TV was visible from the desk. Also, the traveler in means loves having a channel guide right by the remote- thank you. It has 4 HBO in the room.
The grout in this room needed cleaning and carpet had several dark stains. Other than the living daylights and ruined circadian rhythms I would warn people when recommending this hotel.
I'm a business traveler and platinum member. Although five minutes from my home, I stayed here since my AC at home went out last night and it was 89 in my house. I spoke about this to the GM and he said he'd look into it. He seemed sincere but didn't make it right.
