The room was gorgeous. Friendly front desk staff. Location was ok, it's a little tricky to find.
Honestly, I don't think I'd stay here again. It seemed like the walls were very thin. I could hear the people talking in the room above me, the people in the hall outside, the people next door watching TV. And truly, this is not something that usually catches my attention at a hotel, I'm very easy to please.
Even though I had my Do Not Disturb sign up, Housekeeping knocked on my door 5 minutes before my alarm went off. I understand that they need to get the rooms cleaned for the next guests, but it was before 9 am and I still had 3 hours before checkout.
I'm also not too keen on hotels that auto charge for the newspaper -- where you have to decline in order to avoid being charged. I don't read USA Today.
I missed staying at a place with a free breakfast.
I tried to fill out the survey card in the room, but it had already been completed by a prior guest, who was also none too happy. I'm sure she'd be less thrilled to know that I was able to view her address and phone number.
I think the value was fine for the $55 I paid through Priceline, but I definitely wouldn't pay the regular rates for this hotel. The room was large, clean, and very pretty, but it just wasn't worth it to me.
