I was quite surprised to see that an entrance directly from the fourth floor/parking ramp into the hotel near my sleeping room had no security from 6:30 a.m. to midnight! Usually such hotel entrances have key card access only. I also got into my room and noticed that I had an adjoining (but locked) room and a patio door entrance to a main walk way (locked also) that I certainly would not have settled for had I known in advance. This is not very secure for a female traveler. I was in a hurry to get to my next appointment, so didn't have time to change rooms. It was also noisy over night, with loud noises periodically all night. The hotel itself is nice, clean and has a great restaurant, but I mention these factors because to me, as a single traveling business woman, they are of concern.

It was just a hotel. Nothing special. The card key didn’t work for the parking ramp elevator. were some strange people hanging out in the stairwell to the parking ramp who I doubt were guests since we saw them out on the streets later in the evening. There were people lying on the sidewalk in front of the hotel “center” during the day. Not a great view unless you like old, downtown rooftops, parking ramps, etc. There were some dark marks on the tub-not sure what they were. The bed was okay. In sure the hotel was okay when it was first built.

I liked that it was connected by the skywalk to many other places. I wish there was a continental breakfast available.

Nice location, speedy checkin. Not very pleased that all the suites are located in proximity to the atrium - and pools. Very noisy all day and till 10:00 pm. On checkin found bathroom sink dirty - looked like somebody had washed their boots in it, then spit. Phoned front desk at 3:00, 4:00, then visited them at 7:00 to ask them to have it cleaned (which was the 3rd time I requested it).
