Decent hotel, not as nice as I was expecting. Standard room size was very small. Beds were very comfortable and facilities were clean. Biggest disappointment- Couldn’t get any coffee in the morning without waiting a very long time due to their use of Keurig type coffee machines.

Disappointing

Cons: Cleanlinies, and working plugs.
I have stayed here before. I checked in after sleeping the first night my entire bed skirt was stained and something you would buy at a garage sale. One of my two plugs next to my desk did not work. I had to not have my light or radio plugged in while using my laptop. When I checked out I told the front desk help. Her reply "I will tell the staff, did you have a car on premise there is a $22 a day charge for that." I have stayed here every year for a conference at the Sheraton next door. I will not again.
