Thank you for the review of our property on April 5th We are certainly blessed with a great location! We will take a look at the bedding, this is not a comment we hear very often. We thank this guest for bringing this to our attention.

Avoid this hotel if traveling on business or with family. Was woke up numerous times by an all night party but the grand finale was at 4 am when they also woke up our 5 year old. Staff did nothing to discourage the behavior and passed it off as "lots of groups staying at the hotel" and guests "being respinsible for their own behavior".

Room wasn't real clean, dirt in the corners of the bathroom and tiled areas, maybe a cursory sweep was done, certainly hadn't been vacuumed or swept with any attention. Shower floor had dark marks where some of soap residue had been scrubbed clean, soap dispensers were dirty. Someone's soxs (not ours) under the dresser, coffee pot didn't work, however we were only there a couple of nights, wasn't important enough to complain. Front desk and valets staff were wonderful. Overall hotel was good.

We have stayed here before and it has always been a great experience. However we were in a room on the 3rd floor facing the street. We could hear people talking below during the night and the light rail. Our sink was exceptionally small compared to other rooms we had and our things go wet. Just not as nice as our other rooms...
