The lobby is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are very small and are missing a desk. I have never been in a hotel that did not have a desk or a table or someplace besides the bed or toilet to do work or use a laptop. The other problem with the room size is to close the drapes one has to climb over the bed. The rest of the room and the bathroom were very nice. As I stated before The lobby is beautiful but it was impossible for us to enjoy because of the loudness of a wedding reception. The check in process was a little slow, they only have two check-in desks and both had four people in line each. All of the previous problems were minor but the parking is a major issue. When we checked in the lot was completely full because of the Festival of Trees and a wedding reception and we had to park 2 blocks away on the street. After 10pm I was able to move our car to the hotel lot. Without the parking issue I would have given the Blackhawk a very good rating. I will recommend this hotel to my friends but I will tell them to avoid it during the Festival of Trees.
