A very mixed experience here. On the plus side, very clean room, and great location - right downtown, within easy walking distance of everywhere. Easily the best shower I've ever had in a hotel - walk in, spacious, very high shower head (I'm very tall - was able to stand straight up and still get my head wet). On the down side, lots of noise. The fridge sounded like a babbling brook, the vent in the bathroom went right out to the street, so lots of street noise coming in, including the near by train, cars, and passing pedestrians (shutting the bathroom door helped), and the walls were thin - had to listen to some noises from a neighboring room that I'd have preferred not to hear. The parking is a little unusual. Very small lot (maybe about 15 spots) with only one narrow way in. One time when I was trying to leave, a car was blocking the exit while checking in, with another car stopped behind them waiting to get in, while I and another guest were trying to get out. It became a little convoluted trying to get everyone where they wanted to go. And if they're full, they give you a pass to park at an off site location, which admittedly is only about a half block away, but still. You do get a pass for a 2 for 1 deal at the lounge, and a breakfast is included, but I didn't get the chance to check either of them out, so can't comment. They do have bicycles for guests to use, which is nice. Overall - a decent place, but don't know that I'd stay there again.
