This is an OK hotel. We paid $180 for a view of the garage. Which everyone and their uncle has a need to check their door lock continuously. The walls are paper thin, you can hear conversations. And when I got cold I was told by the front desk that they are in "a saving mode" so they can't be turned on. But they would bring me a space heater, or an extra blanket. Their restaurant food was terrible. We ate dinner and breakfast there for convenience. Would I stay there again?, no, but was it horrible? No. And the staff was very good at trying to make you comfortable and happy. They had a snappy waitress who was hilarious and helped us choke down the breakfast. Again, not a horrible hotel, just not great for my husband and I in room 105.
