I've stayed at this hotel for the past 3 years for week long trips and the staff is pretty good. I was able to get a new key immediately, the phone is picked up quickly, and our cleaning lady (Beatrice Jones) did a great job. She was friendly and did a lot more than I expected.

If you stay here during the academic school year you'll really take your chances as this hotel rents rooms to university students. They just don't tell you which ones!
We stayed here last year without incident but this most recent stay was truly a nightmare.
Loud bass music and voices after 11 pm; then awakened again at 3:23 by a slammed door and constant talking, trips to the bathroom for over an hour. I called guest services twice and even pounded on the wall.....didn't have much effect.
The front desk clerk said she didn't know there were students next to us but that doesn't seem reasonable.she said guest services could have moved us but that was never offered as an option.
So, an otherwise positive experience-we were able to easily walk to the hockey game-was turned into a negative one.
I realize any hotel stay can be ruined by noisy, uncaring neighbours but I would think twice about ever booking this hotel again.

The hotel itself was fine, but the shuttle service to the conference center was horrible. We had to stand outside waiting forever to get a shuttle everyday and most days we ended up getting a ride with a shuttle driver from another hotel who was nice enough to pick us up. The hotel told us to wait at the front entrance, but the shuttle drivers would stop earlier and pick up passengers, so when they got to where we were told to wait, they were already full.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I really appreciate your feedback and am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I certain want to apologize for your less than excellent experience with our shuttle service. Our drivers do their best, but traffic and large volumes of visitors can cause unanticipated delays during large conventions. We continue to add capacity to our own shuttle fleet and I have shared your comments with our Guest Service Manager in order to deliver better service. Again, I apologize for your experience with our shuttle and Thank you for your business.
