We were welcomed to the hotel after a redeye from San Francisco.
As soon as we walked in, we were not overly impressed with our room. It was clean and spacious enough but was lacking is some areas. The bathroom was small. I had hoped it would have been more luxurious. I am guessing that this was one of the older rooms and not the ones listed on their website.
Their makeshift gym, as they were redoing their main one, was very good with the machines and weights and water at the ready.
Still, for the price and location, we were happy enough with it. Not blown away but not upset.
I would recommend this to a friend for the location alone. But, I would not stay more than a few nights here. There are other places that would offer the same value and better comfort/amenities.
