Converted dorm room--lovely staff, clean, quiet

Pros: Staff!!
Cons: I had some issues with the internet, so an instruction card on internet connection provided in the room.
Location: The light rail with a 15-20 minute trip to downtown is an easy 10-minute walk from the hotel. Lots to do downtown. On campus are dining facilities,
While the hotel comprises converted dorm rooms, the rooms are clean, quiet, with all the facilities including a coffee maker, mini-frig with a freezer, microwave. The staff are lovely, patient, and helpful with any question. Also, there are views over campus from large windows.

Very Nice, Clean Hotel!

Cons: Should have had more receptacles in the rooms. Had to search to find one to plug my phone, laptop, etc into
Very nice and clean hotel. I would definitely recommend this to a friend! I loved the decor! Very modernish.
