Perfect location across the street from our concert at Wang theater. Only distraction was all the scaffolding in place on the front of the building. Everyone on the staff we interfaced with was very nice and cordial. The included buffet breakfast in our rate was just what we needed to start each day.

This hotel that's far above its name. From the first look inside the building, this is not your typical Courtyard. Greeted by the bellman as I walked in I asked to be pointed to the restrooms. He escorted me as someone would at a fine luxury establishment. The check-in experience was top notch. The agent explained the hotel and amenities to me thoroughly. Everything in my room was clean and tidy. Nothing out of place. I only stayed for one night so it's difficult to speak to housekeeping but those I saw in the hallway greeted me. This felt much more like staying at a larger Marriott property. Super convenient location. I'll be back again!
