I was booked here for a conference at the Pfiser Hotel. Among the things I like about the hotel is the staff; they always greeted me with a smile and was engaging to talk to. the valet always called me by my name, which impressed me that he could recall it when they were so busy. The room is large and I liked the division between living space and sleeping area. The bathroom is large and I had a whirlpool as well as a walk in shower; the water was hot whenever I used it, and items like tv;s, etc worked just fine.
The negative is that my window faced the parking garage; now, I'm not big on window views, however, the lights from the cars came in at all hours of the night; I was not able to close the curtains, so felt like people could look in and see me. typically a room on the fourth floor this would not be an issue, but the garage is also about six floors high. At 4:30 am I could hear a beeping sound of something backing up the first day, which woke me up and on the second day, it sounded like a trash or dump truck was in the alley for hours, once again waking me up at 5:30 am. I even played white noise on my computer to drown it out, but this was ineffective. i could also hear the street noise and cars roaring down the road when in the room. And, due to the garage being just outside the window, it made the day look nasty and grey, instead of the sunny day that was going on. While I understand this is a downtown motel and parking needs done this way, I feel that the $189.00/night is high for the noise. I've had better nights in "lesser" hotels. I doubt that I stay here again, but if I do I will ask for a different room setting.
