There was an open door on the 4th floor that wouldn't close and you could see a bunch of old mini-fridges. The service was excellent. There were some minor issues I had about full disclosure. For example, I purchased my hotel room with breakfast included. I was told to order "whatever off the menu." Then was told later when the bill came that it was a $25 per person limit. It seems sllightly disorganized.

The location was perfect with in walking distance to everything I needed to get to. The thing I found odd was that I could get ice anywhere in the hotel.

This is an excellent hotel. We were in town for business and loved our stay. The only issue is that the resort fee hold is more than listed. But, it was worth it.

Billed separately by the hotel after booking through Travelocity. They claimed to have refunded the extra charges, but they haven't fallen off my credit card yet. Annoying.
