Stayed 4 nights in Nov 08 during election week. The first night we got stuck in a smoking room due to a huge youth convention and us arriving past 10pm to finally check in. I understand that all the other rooms may have been taken but felt disappointed that front desk didn't tell us during check-in to expect a room that was different than what we had reserved.
The next day our room was changed to a bright spacious quiet corner room, as requested in my reservation, with a view of the street just outside the hotel entrance. Nice sunny sitting area, functional granite kitchenette (bring your own pots and pans unless you're ok with rusty or scratched up ones), separate vanity area, and quality sheets were greatly appreciated. Our toddler had lots of space to play.
Internet worked fine. Just bring a cat 5.
Tried the in-house restaurant -- burger, steak, soup -- my most unfavorite meal of the trip. Service was so-so. Skip it and explore the numerous dining options all within walking distance.
Mustafa, the front desk staff person, is probably the most wonderful part of the hotel. He's friendly, helpful, and never rushed you to get to the person behind you. Thanks for making our stay a fabulous one, MUSTAFA!!!
