We read the first two reviews, got a good rate and decided to try it. Factor number one for us is the bed and the Skyler bed was very comfortable. Factor #2 is noise and the Skyler failed this one - the AC is an old fashioned room unit mounted in what looks like a newly studded out chase - very loud - in fact, you could hear the AC in other rooms as it cycled. But the AC noise was actually a blessing because a group of people talking in normal voice in a neighboring room made too much noise to allow sleep because of the chase and lack of sound insulation. Luckily the hotel seemed pretty empty so 2 of 3 nights were OK.
Other factors: staff good, free wifi good, very clean (new) room, TV system with incorrect listing so you couldn't find local stations. And finally, too many pillows on the bed so there's nowhere to put them but the floor and then the housekeeper puts them back on the bed. Why have so many pillows on a bed??? Room is a little goofy with 16 foot ceiling and window about 12 feet up?
Would probably not stay again because of noise factor
