Positive: Location was very convenient. The beds were SUPER comfortable. Probably one of the best beds I've ever had in a hotel! The room was very clean and fresh smelling. Negative: Wait time for elevators was long on most days. Unfortunately, guests are leaving for the day around the same time housekeeping staff are trying to move around the building to clean the accommodations. Bathrooms could use more hanging options for towels.

I was honestly a little worried staying here based off the reviews but took a chance anyway. We were pleasantly surprised. First of all it’s close to everything for about half the cost as most other nearby hotels. The elevator situation was not bad, they were both working. The only problem was one day when a large group came but we were able to squeeze through them. The bathrooms are accessible that’s why they “leak” into the bathroom. However if you put a few towels down ur fine. The water pressure is a little lighter than we typically like but I’m also sure that helps keep the water not getting as bad. We didn’t go to the restaurant upstairs since there are so many other places to eat. The front desk staff was nice as well. They even offered a free late checkout (this is based on availability so may not always be available). The beds and pillows were comfortable. The only real issue we had was one day we left the window open (we get warm easily and like the breeze) and came back to it not only closed but the housekeeper set it to 90 freaking degrees. Also u have zero view if ur facing a back wall, u get a few of people in the office building behind us working, but that’s it. Really no serious complaints and I’d stay there again. I wouldn’t suggest taking a cab using their curb service though, we could have caught a regular one in less time and for less money, but lesson learned there, pretty sure that’s of no fault to the hotel.
