The location isn't bad...about ten minutes driving from south street. Free parking, and WiFi. The rooms are very clean. We paid about $170 a night for a king sized bed and fold out couch, although the standard king room is just as much money. There isn't a microwave or fridge, but there is a vanity, flat screen tv, and hair dryer. Pretty standard. We called and asked for toothpaste and about twenty minutes later we got a knock on the door. There was a very large man with a leather jacket on standing at my door and it wasn't until I opened it that the little room service guy appeared with my toothpaste. It seemed a bit excessive to need a security guard, but I guess it's better to be careful. We got a late check out of two pm which wasn't a problem and no extra cost. Breakfast buffet and room service, although we can't comment on either since we didn't do either. Comfy bed and nice little bathroom. It had a fan which is nice, but the lock didn't work. No big. Anyway, it was overall a very good experience. I wish it were a bit cheaper, but other than that I would absolutely stay again.
