First of all the hotel was located several blocks from the downtown area, and about 200 yards from the train station. There was no air conditioning in the room so we had to open the windows. The train came about every 30 minutes blowing the whistle loud enough to wake the dead. The rooms were more like apartments than a boutique hotel as denoted by Expedia. There was a very strong chemical smell in the hallways and the elevator, The furniture was dated and the TVs were the old non- HD type. We managed to find an old box fan in the closet to use to circulate air but after listening to 3 or 4 trains come through in the 2 hours we were there we decided not to stay. We were charged $182.00 for the room but the girl at the desk was very nice and refunded our following nights charge. She was very helpful and nice, she called a cab for us and let us know when it arrived. She even printed our boarding passes for us. This hotel is misrepresented on the travel sights, it is not what a tourist is expecting when booking in an unknown area. There are no amenities, it's old, hot and stuffy and for us the train whistle every 30-45 minutes was unbearable. I cannot attest to the comfort of the bed because we caught an earlier flight and left. It was a $182.00 lesson NOT to trust Expedia.
