The quality and quantity of towels The black and white tile in the shower Hair dryer

Bigger elevators

5.7 Passable

This hotel is overpriced for the value. We have stayed here before and had a good experience staying in a suite in the main building. This time we stayed in a king room and ended up in the building separate from the front desk. The room was tiny. Like NYC hotel room tiny. The air conditioner was so loud we couldn’t even run it while trying to sleep. There was terrible street noise, hallway noise and we could hear every time someone nearby turned their water on. The room didn’t have a refrigerator or microwave, there was obvious water damage in the bathroom and the parking garage was so small we hit the roof of our mid-sized SUV on the pipes. Do not recommend staying here.

No complaints

9.7 Excellent
The room was exactly what we needed. Comfortable, roomy, great location and at a very fair price. You can't ask for more.

The water pressure is the shower could be a little stronger, but at the end of the day, it worked.
