    Check-In Needs Work

    The young lady that checked me in should be a little more friendly. She seemed like she could not dispatch with me fast enough. I challenged the check in fee because it exceeded $50. It was only then that she mentioned there was a $30 deposit. First, I wonder why this was not mentioned immediately and second, I wonder why it was necessary. No offense but this is not the Four Seasons, where I am not asked for a deposit.

    Great location, just what you need

    Great location, very easy to get to places (walking to uptown or downtown, the subway and convenience stores close by). The bed and pillows were very comfy, shampoo, conditioner and body wash supplied as well as a hairdryer and new towels everyday- would 100% stay again

    Stayed 4 nights in Jan 2020
