This is a very nice Courtyard--clean, comfortable, and with a generally very pleasant staff, particularly in the hotel restaurant. The food is also quite good, and the breakfast buffets, at $9.95 and $8.95 for the hot and cold offerings, respectively, are worth the money.
There are two downsides, however. The first is parking, which costs $18.20 per day for valet service. Unfortunately, except for Sundays, you cannot park at the nearby street meters because they will tow your car between 7 and 9 a.m. and 4 and 6 p.m. The other less desirable reality of this hotel is that there are a few rude employees. One, a receptionist named Crystal, rebuffed my request for a discount that had been promised by one of her colleagues when we downgraded our room. We attempted to persuade her, but she made it abundantly clear that in my case at least, the customer was never going to be right. Nice.
My advice is to park on the street on Saturday night. They don't tow on Sundays and you'll save almost twenty bucks. One other recommendation: Don't deal with Crystal.
