A re-modeled previously national-chain hotel, broke away "to be independent", but filled with celebrity pictures still referencing the old chain. The remodeled decor is interesting to say the least, very minimalist and modern. However, the re-model seemed only skin deep. The shower valve was almost impossible to tune, just kept spinning past very hot to very cold, extremely sensitive. The doors did not close tightly, allowing us to be awakened by the maids chattering next door.
The hotel obviously caters to tour buses, since there were as many as three in the parking lot at one time during our two-night stay, but that was no problem if you slept late enough to avoid the breakfast rush. (The breakfast buffet, by the way, was excellent.)
Great location, easy walk to the (very cool) downtown. Overall, improve the infrastructure and you get another star.
