We were staying on business and the location was chosen for us. This isn't a great location because on a weekend, there wasn't much to do within a safe walking distance. Now if we were going to an event at the arena across the street - my opinion about the location would change.
The rooms were typical hotel rooms with comfy beds and pillows. I just got the ick impression that it wasn't that clean. Stray hairs in the bathroom, peeling wall paper, stains on the walls (maybe I've been watching too much CSI and I'm noticing stuff more?), and the little details like no coffee for the coffee maker, or the accompanying packets of sugar. A grabbed one off of the maid cart when walking by after picking up a couple of cups at Starbucks in the office building next door (THAT CLOSES AT NOON ON WEEKENDS) and stuck it next to the coffee maker - hoping maid service would notice and replace. Nope. Oh well, I shelled another $4 at Starbucks the next morning, and have to say the coffee was better anyhow.
There are no restaurants nearby, so we had drinks in the bar - very friendly staff, and the next evening ate in the restaurant - which was ok, but really pricey. I guess I'd just like some options closer by.... within walking distance. I can't say that I'd want to stay again, and given the choice wouldn't.
