Compared to other hotels within a mile of the convention center, this was very economical plus they had free shuttle service to and from the convention center and anywhere within a 2 mile driving radius. It would have been nice to have had a microwave and small fridge in the room.

I chose this hotel on price (less than $100/night for a downtown location during a major trade show) and was surprised by the service and the quality of the room. I chose to walk the slightly less than a mile to the convention center each day, but the hotel offers a free shuttle to anywhere in a two-mile radius. The room was clean and spacious with a fridge and microwave, and I had a great view of one of the canals. The bed was very comfortable. Service in and out was fast and easy, and the elevators worked great. I did not eat here so I can't comment on the restaurant.

Room Tip: I liked the view from my upper-floor room.

Rooms need to be updated. Toilet seat was old and cracked in some places. During last two nights with heavy rain, window/roof was leaking.
Need to add microwave and refrigerator without charging an extra fee.
Please update television. Didn't know"box" tvs still worked.
