This downtown property is consistent with what I think of when I stat at a Sheraton brand of Marriott hotel. The lobby is nicely arranged with lots of places to work and interact. The front desk staff greeted me quickly and was very helpful. The rooms are a generous size and decorated with an updated woodsy theme in the main area and a disco-deco style mirror in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable with excellent quality linens and pillow choices, which is very important to me. The bathroom amenities were full sized, which I really appreciate to cut down on plastic waste AND that you aren’t limited to tiny sized amounts of product. Unfortunately, all three of the shower bottles were empty or nearly empty. I would give the hotel 4.5 stars because it’s good, not perfect. Since I can’t do that, I’ll be rating the hotel at 4 stars.

I checked in last night at 1am. Never got my room in the app. No one was there when I pulled up/greeted us, etc. No one at front desk at first. I asked for a quiet room so we could sleep in & was woken up at 7am by the massive AC units next door. I paid extra for a view (of those AC units apparently). They must know that no one is sleeping through the constant hammering made by the building next door. This is not a one time thing. Super disappointed. We really needed to sleep in & I paid extra to ensure it would be possible. Only here 1 night so moving is not an option. So frustrated. Other side of the building might be ok but the odd # side is awful.
