The area is nice. It is close to many downtown sites. The beds are HORRIBLE. I never have back issues and I woke each day with terrible low back pain (a good reason to seek the spa/massage services.) Valet service is NOT optional as stated unless you want to park and walk a mile or park illegally. The information on the site leads you to believe that you have a choice. NO, you don't unless you don't have an auto. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Not all rooms have balconies...mine (4th floor) had a pleasant view of the aircondtioning units and business buildings/parking lot. Noisy. The hotel itself was nice, and seemed updated. The bathroom was large and well lit. The room itself was clean but something was not quite right witht he A/C unit...the sheets and air seemed VERY humid and damp. Apparently there is complimentary fruit - never saw it. The coffee provided in the rooms is good. I am well traveled and have stayed in hostels that are more pleasureable than this hotel. This should be rated more or less like a motel & never as 4 star Spa. So disappointed. On a positive note. There are bikes available in the lobby. That is a nice touch.
