Staff went above and beyond

I stayed there between April 2nd and April 5th. I switched room so I can shared hotel cost with my colleague at the conference. Then I found out I misplaced my charger. Given that I was going to present the next morning, I was panicking. But the security guy, Brentt (I believe that is how you spell his name) was so professional and went above and beyond to help me to check and locate my computer charger.

Great for one night!

Stayed in a King Superior Room from one night. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, coffee was Kuerig. What else could you want in the hotel room?

Looks good, feels bad

Appearance wise, it's beautiful. The walls are super thin and I could hear everything my neighbors were doing. People tried entering my room through all three doors, every single night. I was not happy about that. I was told i would have free WiFi, it's actually only free for a few hours and at horrible speeds. I also booked a smoking room and the hotel actually doesn't offer smoking rooms.

Nicely located and relatively inexpensive. Many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. The room was a little small but very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff

Holiday Weekend

Enjoyed the d├ęcor of the room. Location was perfect for a Christmas weekend in the city. Only comment is that no one asked if we needed help with our bags until after we had checked in. After holding them that long we decided to take them to the room ourselves.
