The valet service was very good. The overall decor of the hotel is tired and worn. The marketing pictures do not match the actual condition of the hotel. The restaurant and bar were also closed.

Mike, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I apologize that we did not meet your expectations and that our food and beverage outlets were not open during your visit. We are in the process of upgrading some décor items. We have also reopened The Trophy Room for service. I hope you get the opportunity to visit and enjoy all that we have to offer.

We went here due to a medical appointment nearby. The hotel is absolutely nothing special. The staff was not particularly friendly, the accomodations were just ok and the local area is not our cup of tea, so to speak. I would not stay there again if I had to return for an overnight visit.

Great location right on the Corner. The staff was incredibly friendly and eager to help. Wish it had been warmer so we could have taken advantage of the wonderful rooftop bar. Will definitely return!

The location was perfect for me. That is really all I have to say and do not want to make something up to meet the 50 character requirement.
