For the price, this stay was a bargain. The rooms were clean although the mattress was a little firm for my taste, but still acceptable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was average, but it was hot and of fairly good quality. The free underground parking was also a plus. The downtown location was close to shops and... More

We two elderly citizens (78yrs) asked for a quiet room, reservation made months ago. Dustin at the desk, a very pleasant young man said sure no problem. I asked to not be near the pool. We were in a rush to join friends for dinner and just dropped our bags and left the room before looking out the window. So... More

The room, pool area, meeting rooms are nice. The whole hotel needs cosmetic maintenance. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our group rate was $12 more than I could have gotten through TripAdvisor.

This hotel has some good and some bad. First...the good: The hotel is in a great location, especially if you are attending anything at the newly upgraded Verizon Wireless Center, which I was. The skyways connect the two so even if it's cold or rainy, you will stay warm and dry! Also...free parking for hotel guests and free breakfast. For... More

We are the parents of the groom and part of a large Wedding Party. Many of us stayed at the hotel. The best parts were the Rehearsal Dinner and the Wedding Reception.

This hotel is definitely underrated. This is our third stay here. Four people stayed in a spacious double queen for 89.10, the AAA rate. Breakfast is included. Once taxes were added in, the total came to about 100.00, but what a deal. That's 25.00 per person with a meal included! The rooms are updated, large, and the bathroom is very... More
