This wasn't the greatest place we've stayed but certainly wasn't the worst either. The furnishings in the lobby area as well as the room showed age-definitely appeared worn and some appeared stained. The rooftop pool area, despite excellent views, was underwhelming and showed age. Construction was underway on the top floor, therefore, guests were required to take the stairs from the floor before to get to the pool and the stairway was occasionally crowded with people working on the building. The room, though aged, was clean and comfortable with an excellent view, though construction was also going on with the air conditioning which meant we often had workers just outside of our window. For one evening and day during our stay the hotel was without air conditioning. Apparently this was unavoidable due to a malfunction; however, the hotel offered a complimentary breakfast to all guests that morning. We were worried the heat would be rough (June in the South); however, we were never terribly uncomfortable. We did hear several others complaining about the heat. The location of the hotel was excellent, within walking distance of pretty much anything you might want to do downtown. We probably will book elsewhere in the future because, for the price, we have definitely seen better in the area.
