Pros. Live jazz with drop in performers was dynamite to come home to after a long day working! My room had beautiful wall paintings of a large bird and enormous, luminous trees - really made me feel special each day. Great place to start and finish each day!

Cons. I picked the hotel for the location, convenience of the parking garage, and funky feel. I was not disappointed.

Pros. Great value for what we paid. Room was very clean and comfortable. Nearby area is interesting to walk around for window shopping and eating. Breakfast quality is great.

Cons. They charge an additional fee that includes breakfast, wifi, and use of the fitness center. It would be more straightforward to include that in the base rate.
