Very good location, however, outside entrance and lobby look like they needed a "facelift" at least 20 years ago. Extremely small and slow elevators. Cannot fit more than 2 people and luggage in it. My husband and I do not think the elevator could fit a wheelchair. Room was clean, but the bathroom was very dark and little counter space. The shower door opened into the shower instead of outward. There was no electrical outlet except outside the bathroom, close to the floor, across from the mirrored closet door. I had to use my curling iron by bending down and placing it on the floor each curl. Crazy! The hall walls are paper thin.
Pros- the rooftop restaurant was excellent with great views. Due to the very slow elevators, it could take a long time to reach this restaurant and return downstairs, but it is worth the wait.
