Stayed at the Hotel UMass on my first trip back to campus in 20+ years. The rooms are nice and clearly newly renovated. I was lucky enough to get a room facing the main campus - the library, campus pond and fine arts center.
Don't look at the severe concrete exterior and assume its the same inside. Staff - many of whom are students - were welcoming and helpful. Room was clean, nice and quite spacious.
Took away one "star" for campus construction right outside of hotel that started pretty early. Also, either I was too close to the elevator or the elevator noise vibrated throughout the building....couldnt tell which, but could hear it a bit.
