    Not bad just not four star

    We have stayed here twice. Mainly because it has little to no fragrance in the rooms. Parking can be difficult. The first stay we arrived at 1:00am so I didn’t think anything of it. But this time we arrived at 6:00pm on a holiday weekend and the suggested parking was closed. The front desk had no suggestions on where to park. I ended up parking at the Sheraton because the other nearby garages have no overnight parking. We ordered a snack and some drinks from the restaurant downstairs to take back to our room. The chips were stale so much that it hurt my teeth and the guacamole was obviously out of date. The drinks were very watered down. We ended up throwing it all away and walking to the wine and spirits. Overall it is worth the price but not the star rating.

    Room/ hotel was great . A little noisy but I think it was a function of being near the street.

    Kind staff

    Unfortunately I got very sick and had to go to the hospital. Your staff was very caring, concerned, and attentive. I’d like to thank them for everything they did.

    Basic stay

    Room was clean and bed was comfortable but room was small and very basic. Would have loved a coffee maker in the room.

    Weekend trip with family

    The hotel was easy to find and in a not so crowded area. I probably should have parked nearby and saved on money, but I used valet for $46. The lady at the front desk was great and super friendly and helped me find nearby restaurants. I wasn’t too impressed with the restaurant in the hotel as the food was very subpar for the price. My kids hated the grilled cheese and the turkey sandwich I ordered wasn’t very good either. The room was nice and very quiet. We didn’t hear a sound from anyone so we had a very peaceful sleep. The bathroom was very clean and the water pressure was great. My only complaint would be that there was no mini fridge in the room. Overall, it was great though and I would stay again.
