Location is great and tons of good restaurants around. Service is usually pretty good and the staff is friendly, occasionally there are less than ideal encounters but let's chalk it up to a bad day. The rooms can be spacious and nice but the big complaint I have here is the bathrooms are in need for an upgrade. Bathtubs are older and toilets take extra long to fill back up. What they lack in the bathrooms they make up for with the breakfast options and bar/ restaurant. Overall a solid place to stay but would be hands down best option if upgraded the bathrooms.

The service we receive at this hotel - from check in, to the team working the Amuse breakfast, to the bartender and room cleaning was excellent. It is a friendly place to stay. Beds are comfortable. There's not really enough for 4 people to stay in a room due to there being limited bag room. The new water bottle fill stations are very nice/convenient on each floor. Thanks for another good Thanksgiving stay!
