I am paying $89 a night. What does that get you, oppressively low ceilings, a weird musty smell, polyester comforters, super crappy tv, bad wine at the bar, and whatever you do, don't fall for the free breakfast or $2.99 menu breakfast, it was disgusting. Beautiful view and in edible food, Luke warm, weak coffee. This hotel has a great downtown location but is in serious need of a big overhaul. Buy some decent bedding at least and get some new carpet. I can't wait to check our of here.
