Pros. Room was very clean. Comfortable bed. Staff was friendly and attentive via phone to front desk.

Cons. Thin walls. Reception desk was slow as molasses. Possibly understaffed. Check-in on the computer took way too long especially having already provided all my details online. Dried creamer packets for the coffee in room is disgusting.

Dale, Sep 2014

Pros. Breakfasts were fantastic, both selection and the time of availability. The staff were attentive and polite and kept everything well stocked. The location is great for downtown

Cons. The front desk/lobby could help a bit more with directions, or perhaps a walking map of downtown could be made available for those who don't have cars.
