Stayed here 1 night only, could not put up with 3rd floor and long walk to the icemaker (1 for hotel on 3rd floor), microwave (1 for hotel on ground floor) and 1 working elevator which was over 200 feet from our room. The guy on front desk asked "what do you expect from a hotel built in the 60's" I replied that for over 200 rooms I would expect the other 3 elevators to work properly, and the 2 vending machines and 1 ice machines on our fllor that were unplugged/in need of service, to be maintained. After this he checked in a couple and gave them magnetic key to room beside ours already occupied by a sleeping family, I don't know who was more surprised, the new guest or the sleeping children who woke to their mothers scream when someone entered their room at 9.30pm.
There is an indoor pool, the water was rather cold, the spa was like a swamp, cold, green and the smell was awful, would stay away from the spa.
Breakfast was hot water, tea bags, an EMPTY coffee jug (no one around to refill), bread, muffins, a toaster, grape jelly and cheese spread, NO BUTTER, forget breakfast, it is not worth the trek if you are over the convention centre part of the hotel.
If you just need to crash in a comfortable bed, this is a good hotel easy accessable from the freeway and not far from downtown, if you plan to come and go, have breakfast or go for a swim FORGET IT
