We had a street facing view and our blinds did not close. Really unnerving. The elevator did not work half the time and the hallways were stifling hot. It said it had a workout facility but this was actually not anything more than a room with some treadmills and a few dumbbells. Pretty disappointing.

Great deal but they over-book

Pros: It was clean, pleasantly decorated, included a full breakfast and was well located.
The hotel is a really good deal for the price, but it is recommended that you prepay for your room to make sure they don't give it away. They have a policy of overbooking, and if you are bumped they will find you another room in a different hotel for the same price. I arrived at 6:00 and my room had been given away, so I was offered a different room which was an issue because I was traveling with a second person and we requested two queen beds and were given a room with a king sized bed. Additionally, they don't have enough parking for every guest, so if you arrive late you will be redirected to a parking lot located a few blocks away.
