Room was very small. Our toilet would not flush. Water pressure was nonexistent. Towels were very worn. Definitely could use updating.

It was noisy starting at 7am. There was a parking lot right outside my door with a forklift and truck backing up with the back up alarm. The door also let cold air in all night.

incredible location, good staff and efficient rooms, but very tight spaces in room, hallways/corridors a bit tired and runs more like a motel after you get past entrance.

Convenient location to the airport and downtown with friendly staff. Older hotel with some upgrades; louder as rooms do open to outside corridor (with parking lot below). Everything in my room was unplugged and could have used another blanket/comforter over thin sheets! Does include breakfast.

I was really pleased with my overall stay. The hotel was pretty much perfect considering location (close to restaurants the night life and air port). The room was very nice and clean. My room was cleaned everyday and I received fresh linen/towels. Front desk guy from night shift was very helpful probing information about the area what to do and even provided a map showing details :-)

Staff badmouthed Travelocity. First room was a small boxlike with small bath . Toilet did not work. Moved us to a better room w an extra charge. Free breakfast not available for us. Only for people who booked through the hotel. No vanity in bathroom.. parking 25 dollars a day. No glasses in room. Only paper cups. This is the second time we stayed here but would not do it again.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location and beautiful views from the restaurant and rooftop deck. There is no view from city view rooms so that description is misleading. This hotel is basically a secured motel with a hotel front. Very overpriced.
