There was stuff to like, but lots to hate. First night, the hotel was completely overrun by a college fair that metastasized all over the hotel. Kids running past my ground-floor room at 9 pm, hollering to each other down the hall. Room service was very slow and they were out of several items on their menu.
Coffee maker in the room was dusty and cumbersome. No cream for the coffee, and no free coffee available in the lobby. C'mon, guys, even a Motel 6 usually has some in the lobby!
My room was 20 feet away from an emergency exit that was supposedly locked to the outside 24 hrs a day. But most of the weekend it was propped slightly open, which means anyone could have come and gone at will.
Remote control was clearly losing its batteries. My last night I took it to the front desk at about 7, because it had stopped working completely. Clerk said he'd have somebody bring a new one, but they never did. So no TV on night 4.
The wireless internet was a bit spotty.
When I checked out, the bill said, "If for any reason you're not completely satisfied with your stay, stop at the front desk before you leave." So I did, but the young woman on duty was completely uninterested in listening to my complaints. Her response was, "We're sorry about that."
On the plus side, the staff was friendly and room service food was good, which was lucky because there are no restaurants within walking distance. The room was acceptable, but I expect acceptable for $110 a night.
