Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff did not care when I told them I fell out of the shower on day one! Not having a doctor check if I’m ok. I felt like they wanted to nickel and dime me. I felt treated different since I used a third part to book the hotel. The room walls felt like they needed up keeping with paint. The pictures that I saw about the hotel that are showing the rooms, did not look like the room I got. I would not stay here again!

The hotel room was super dusty/moldy/smelly. It was SO much smaller and older than the pictures appeared online. The cleaners kept shutting off the heat and leaving the windows open… we’d come home to a freezing room. Took 3/4 hours to heat up. I would not recommend.

This is a really ideally located hotel with lots of amenities in and around it. The staff and housekeeping were plesant and the rooms and property seemed well kept and clean. There was some street noise but that is to be expected being in a large city. My only complaint is that the beds were extremely uncomfortable. The property could spend some money and update them.
