The room was not cleaned properly.

Pros: Very pleasant staff.
Cons: Cleanliness. It took over 15 minutes to get checked in and the lobby was very cold.
Location: Excellent location, right down town.
I checked in early but left and did not return until later that evening. It wasn't until the morning that I noticed how disgusting the bathroom was. There were stains across the ceiling that looked like someone had some how urinated on it and it was left to dry. There was hairs in the showed and dried liquid spillage on the outside of the garbage can. This is far from what I would expect when paying over $200 a night for a room. Minus the unfortunate state of the bathroom the room appeared clean and the hotel was nice. However, I was extremely disappointed that they would turn over a bathroom in that state.

Pretty Average Hotel

This was a very average 1980's hotel. There was nothing special about it. The place was clean and the staff was amiable. The location was great.

Not very nice

This hotel was a disappointment. First, the walls are paper thin, so I could hear everything going on next door. Second, the room wasn't very clean and they didn't replace items that had been used up, such as mouthwash and shampoo. Third, the staff was neither helpful nor friendly. I asked for help getting a cab, for instance, and they told me that couldn't do anything.

When I booked this stay, I seen pictures of "the pool", but then learned after arriving that those pictures are "just an idea" of the place. Guess what? No pool! Sheraton has more than one hotel in the same city. On that same note, the view I seen on the site was not the one I was given which was off ongoing construction through the dirtiest windows I've ever seen. Also, the coffee pot made only one cup at a time into a throwaway cup. I prefer a glass pot which makes 4 or 6 at a time. The coffee was too strong to drink, so I had to dump some out and add water to it. I doubt I use a travel site again due to this deciet. I'll go directly to the hotel site and book with them.

A Little Pricey, but a Good stay

Our stay is the third in three years here. We like the location (right across the street from the State Capitol), and about one mile from the Arena District, where the Hot Chocolate 5K Run took place. The facilities were great. The staff was very helpful. The room was very comfortable, although no refrigerator in the room was a little disappointing. Overall, quite a satisfying experience.

Nice hotel, food service not so good

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
The front desk staff were very welcoming, and the room was perfectly comfortable. I ate dinner in the lounge (restaurant closed) and found service poor along with food quality (soup so hot it burned my mouth; french fries uncooked). The next morning I got breakfast at the Starbucks and a staff member there said something very inappropriate to me. I would not choose to stay here again because of those food service experiences.
