The bad definitely overshadowed any good there could be found about this hotel. We were looking forward to our trip and were comforted by the reviews on TA that talked the hotel up. Maybe expectations were too high but for value for the money I would have felt cleaner and been more rested at a holiday inn express or Fairfield inn and suites in the city.
First off the pictures are not an accurate representation. The hotel was just run down and not very clean.
The reception in the evening is a nice idea but very crowded and again cleanliness. People leave plates and dishes in the hallway and they sit there for days.
The location is decent but because the hotel is the bottom 6 floors it is very loud from outside the windows. I have stayed at other hotels downtown and not had this problem.
Last as we were checking out this morning we noticed a bug crawling on our bed. I took a photo and looked it up online, and you guessed it, bed bug. I know that many hotels have bed bugs or have issues with them but just gross. Now I have to go home and worry about making sure the bed bugs don't also come home with me.
Overall not a four star hotel and not worth the value. Very disappointed in this hotel.
