The overall interior of the hotel needs to be updated. It has gotten to the point where you cannot tell whether it is dirty or just old. The pictures on the site are taken at night probably several years ago with a flash, so they look a lot cleaner and brighter than actual. The bedding is not a duvet, just a blanket and the bed is maybe a double at most making it difficult to sleep two people. The rate was a whopping $179 per night, so definitely no value, at $60 per night and with a family for an extended stay where you could use the kitchen, this would be ok I suppose. Personally, I like fluffly bedding, comfort, room service, clean and new decor above all else, which was seriously lacking. As a business traveller with no room service options other than Dominos accross the street and the hotel being a 25 minute walk from the convention center and an unreliable shuttle, for me this is not the place to stay. Service was ok, but not what I am used to. This hotel is barely holding on to its 3 star hotel class in my opinion. I would not stay here again and after checking in and seeing the place considered moving to the Hyatt/Marriott/Westin, but they did not have any rooms available.
