Great value for the location. The triple A discount was significant and the staff was friendly and helpful. Valet parking was a breeze and Jose A. always greeted me with a smile and quick service.
My critiques are trivial - the signage is lacking (where is the gym? the stairs?), the rooms lack any sort of small touch (no city guide, no pens/notepad, no hotel brochure, no anything!) but I would easily forsake those small amenities for being in the heart of Little Italy at a discount.
