All in all it's not a bad place - the room was nice, the staff friendly, the option of self-parking a welcome alternative to the usual valet, and the price reasonable for the area. That said, there were just enough little things to drive you crazy. The room was not ready for check-in at 4:00 PM, a fact made all the more annoying by the next 5-10 groups that we watched check in without problems while we waited. The long blonde hair in the bathroom sink couldn't have possibly belonged to either of us. The night club next door plays LOUD music late into the night - loud enough to be easily heard even on the tenth floor of the hotel. The shower had a conspicuous lack of hot water in the morning. Not horrible things (although the cold shower wasn't great), but just enough to make you think twice about going back.
