Best downtown hotel
I've stayed many times at this location and it is always a pleasure.

Very good 8.0
Great stay !
Stay was great . Room was great and staff were friendly . Only thing I didn’t like was that we could not close the drapes for more darkness . So the city lights came in instead of a black out affect with the drapes . Other than that everything was good !

Fair 4.0
Fake hotel
The room is very disappointing
Babatunde Solomon, ca4 night family trip
Good 6.0
Very comfortable bed and pillow. Showe was also nice. Breakfast during covid is not existing, it would be easier just say there is none. I recommend offer just a pastry or muffin instead of a bag of cookie and sugary cereal bars. The hotel's internet is terrible don't make plans to work from this property.
Diego, ca3 night trip
Fair 4.0
No room service to tidy the room, replace towels etc. Blamed Covid. Though I understand...there is no reflection on room price. They still charge full amount with ZERO service...not even breakfast which was listed. This hotel was in an unsafe area of town. The front desk warned us not to leave 'ANYTHING' in the car, not even a penny (their words). Break-ins of auto and homelessness rampant right at the hotel and area. They suggested I pull the car to the protected underground parking, which I did on night one. It was so steep it scraped and damaged the underneath of the car. I barely made it out that morning. This place is NOT recommended. ** I also arranged for a car rental through you with thrifty. We drive a couple Mercedes and BMWs in our lives...so the best I could find on the roster was a VW Passat...at least German! Instead I received a piece of junk KIA!!!! I paid for one and somehow was switched? Pathetic vehicle.

Parking needs work, but great otherwise
The hotel room was lovely, cam see some wear needing fixing, but overall, lovely. The parking areas need work done. I have a lowered car and it grinded on the drop offs at the back of the parking and going up to park... need to angle those.

Very good. On my first stay forgot my stetson. Called a couple of hours later to have it set aside. Upon checking in my hat was presented to me without asking.
