The folks at the front desk are very nice. My room was pretty noisy, but I knew what to expect from other reviews; it is a downtown hotel after all, next to a train tracks. But the walls were thin, I could hear the phone ringing in an adjacent room. The standard room was spacious, and the Priceline deal was terrific. But, the $17 self parking charge was a bit of a surprise.
The breakfast was not good. The breakfast potatoes were french fries. They did have made to order eggs (not stations, you have to put in an order) so we ordered grits, which took 30 minutes, and were watery. I love the location though.
