Convenience of downtown parking could not be set up much better. The lobby has a lot of character. Two minor knocks would be the light water pressure in the shower, but that seems to be typical of most mid rise hotels. The Kleenex box was empty at the end of the first day and never replaced even though we set the empty box on top of the dispenser.

Very nicely maintained hotel

Though there might have been a loose fixture or 2 the hotel was in very good condition. The decor was fancy but not too chintzy. Hotel staff was very nice and attentive. The soda machine on my floor even gave out extra sodas per vend.

Great hotel, but it was a little pricey

The hotel is very nice. The staff was friendly & helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We were able to book at the last minute, but we did have to pay a premium rate to do so.

Good Stay - Nice Place

The room was not ready when we arrived (approx 4PM) but was ready by the time we parked. The room was a little cramped, but overall, it was very nice. The staff was very nice and was very nice when I spilled a cooler full of water in the main lobby. They had a "wet floor" sign up in no time and acted like it was no big deal. We didn't experience any amenities or the food/bar area because of time.

Fantasic Weekend Getaway

My wife and I stayed here over the weekend and had a wonderful time. The hotel is close to everything. The things I would say were bad would be the cable not working and the parking.

Hot Weather

Starting with the good Hotel staff where very friendly and easy to understand. Free waters where provided and parking lot was a secure location. It is within walking distance of the landing which was our destination. We where accommodated with a fold up bed. Now the bad The AC didn't seem to work properly and the room would get really hot at times. The bathrooms vent didn't seem to work which fogged up the glass. Also, we booked a room for 3 and where given a king sized bed. The fold up bed was pretty big and was not very easy to conceal.

Nickel and Dime

The hotel was nice enough, clean rooms and somewhat helpful staff. However, everything was an 'extra charge'. They charge $19.95 a day for parking, $10.95 a day for internet use! Can you believe they charge for internet use, we had to go to Panera Bread to check emails. The workout room was decent and no charge but we were afraid to check out anything else in case we were charged.
