I've stayed here twice now for business in the past month. The first time (early October) I was not that impressed. It was taking awhile to get people checked in (this was after the 4pm check-in time had started) because rooms had still not been cleaned. I was able to get in within a few minutes, but people were being turned away who had been guaranteed their room would be ready at 4pm. The most frustrating part was that there were 5 to 6 of us waiting, it was taking a few minutes per person to get checked in, but they waited a good 5 minutes before finally getting another employee to come out and operate the third computer.
My other complaint was that the floor I was on (first) was noisy; there's a decent gap under the door that let in a lot of noise, whether it was a housekeeper rolling her cart or guests talking.
The second stay I had was MUCH better. It was during the week and it seemed a lot less busy, so I would recommend this hotel if you're going during the middle of the week. This time I got the top floor, and the noise level was also much better.
Mixed feelings, I would stay again if it was during the week, but for my next stay I am trying a different hotel just to see how it compares.
