The location is nice. The staff was super friendly. Rooms were clean and well equipped. However, the hotel is being rented almost entirely by the college across the river. I think floor ten is the only normal guest floor. I'm trying to stay on business and there is no functioning internet bc it's overwhelmed with hundreds of college kids. That being said they didn't have a business room either. Just a couple of desktops sitting in the ridiculously loud lobby full of coeds. The hotel is nice enough and I'm sure would be fine if it wasn't for them being temporary housing for the college. Don't get me wrong the kids were nice and quiet. But it still brought back nightmares of my college dorm room. The staff was nice enough to cancel the reservation and not charge me once we realized the internet did not work. Just spend the extra 25 bucks and stay at the Sheraton down the road until they clear out the kids and finish renovations.
