Pros: The hotel is very close to downtown and the start of the Monumental Marathon; probably about a block and a half away, which was really great!
It's across the street from the museum.
The staff at the hotel was amazing; always very polite and professional.
The room was clean and the bathroom was a very nice size.
Cons: Our room, 214, overlooked a lower rooftop of the hotel. Just a luck of the draw but not very breathtaking.
Also, that room (and maybe other rooms around it) had a constant noise that you could hear from the hallway, the bathroom, and the room itself. It was a low motorized sound and while trying to sleep, I kept dreaming I was near a NASCAR track. It sounded similar to cars going around a circular track. Very odd. My husband mentioned it to the front desk and they said there were not aware of the noise and would check on it but nothing was done. We finally wore earplugs in order to sleep the second night.
The shower head had a very soft stream with little pressure. It was very difficult to assure I had all of the shampoo and conditioner out of my hair.
My husband and I both felt the bed was hard and uncomfortable. That, along with the weird noise, made it very difficult to sleep.
The elevators are pretty slow. I'm not sure if this is typical for hotels but if the elevator is on a higher floor, it's going to be a bit of a wait to get to the lobby.
Self-park in their garage is $23.00 per day. Again, this is probably typical for downtown hotels but we thought it was very pricey, considering what you pay for the room.
