i stayed here because it's a convenient location to downtown sites and the hotwire rate was $65. otherwise i would never pay higher rates for this hotel. it's design is poor- why build a luxury hotel next to train tracks? my room rattled and rumbled every time a train went by. it wasn't real loud because i requested a room facing the inner lobby- but that meant there was no outside view and the room felt clausteraphobic and was dark.also, there was a strong chlorine bleach smell from the pool throughout the lobby and in my room.
tv reception was very poor with limited channels. otherwise the room was ok.
front desk was understaffed, with one person having to answer the phone, man the adjacent gift shop and check people in. so they didn't have time to be friendly or advise me how to get to get to my room. the design is poor and it's difficult to find your room.
