We stayed here for the first time on a Friday night. We checked in using a free night we had earned through the rewards program. The staff member at the front desk who checked us in was really friendly - made jokes but gave us all the important info too. The hotel isn't attached to the skywalk system, but it's a short walk to a parking ramp that provides access. The room was very nice with modern touches. I was a little surprised at some of the color choices - I think the white countertops in the kitchen and white floor in the bathroom are going to show age quickly. The countertop already had some visible lines and the seams were crooked. The bed was very comfortable. Beware the train that came through at 12:45 a.m. - very, very loud. Breakfast the next morning was good, and we were able to walk a couple of blocks to the farmers' market, which was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.
