Very good 8.0
Great pool!
Rooms are dated, but not terribly banged up. Renovations seem to be in progress. I asked for a quiet room. It sounds like I got one underneath renovations and next to the service elevator. Not so quiet during the day, but very quiet at night. Room temperature and comfort are important to me. The room had individually controlled heating/cooling, though it was a bit noisy. Breakfast room: cold and uninviting. Incredible pool and a small fitness room.

I've stayed here before. The location is excellent. The pool is very nice. It is a nice 3 star hotel, comfy bed an good cable. It is worth getting a room with a view. Parking is convient, an 10 bucks a night. Be aware they are renovating the upper floors. Noise starts about 9:15 am till late afternoon. I will stay here again.
