Fitness center, guest laundry. All rooms are suites. All Comfort Suites are smoke free.
Walk ability - super clean - spacious
Very noisy & slow elevator. Toilet seat not secure in the room or even in the lobby. Breakfast removed and/or empty before it was time to be over. Staff at front desk did nothing to get bathroom in room repaired during our six day stay. Told to try other floors and find a working ice machine - tried 3 floors before finding a working unit. Unsafe parking area - false sense of security with a gate to go in - yet public can drive in from a side entrance.
The staff here is so friendly, and will go out of their way to ensure your stay is top notch. They provided us with a list of restaurants in the area, and what their favorites were, and answered all my questions. Room set up was nice too, when my daughter went to sleep, I went into the separate sitting area where there is a second t.v. So I didn't wake her up. Good value for what you get and close to everything in Downtown.
The only downside to this Hotel is there is no pool or spa. We had to go to the Hampton Inn up the freeway. But it was zero hassle from the staff there to use their pool area.
Easy check in, reserved parking, free breakfast.
I was charged $25 extra upon check in I initially thought it may have just been a charge from the hotel for tax that may have not been included in the final kayak bill. But after reading my kayak confirmation and reading that NO EXTRA FEES OR CHARGES WILL BE ADDED UPON CHECK IN, I contacted the front desk and was told they couldn't do anything about it it was basically KAYAKS fault for sending them the wrong room rate and I would have to take that up with kayak. So I contacted kayak and was told that the hotel gave me the wrong information. Kayak sends the same conformation letter that I received and my room rate should not have been changed. They asked if they could put me on hold so that they can contact the hotel and get it straighten out. They returned rather quickly and said I should be receiving my refund and receipt from the hotel within a few days. So other than the hotel trying to get a few extra bucks from me. I really appreciate kayak and their quick professional manner in resolving the issue.
