I got a great rate on HotWire and when I pulled into my free parking space right at the edge of downtown, I decided I'd look past the dated building and told myself, 'It's only one night.'. Once inside, I was relieved to find a nicely designed, modern looking lobby. At first, the front desk guy apologized and told me I would be staying on a floor that was being renovated and that there would be no carpeting in the hallways and the rooms were still the “old style.” I smiled and said, “Is this because I booked on Hotwire?” (I've heard stories where you end up with the worst room in the hotel when you book on discount sites). He assured me I was not being penalized for getting such a steal on the room – and after playing with the computer, he was able to find a room for disabled people that had been renovated. Inside, it reminded me of the NH Hotel in Brussels: sleek, stylish and comfortable.
The only weird thing is that when I called the front desk to ask for the free Wi-Fi code, the lady gave me a phone extension to call. When I did, I understood why she didn't take the time to just give me the code– It is the longest, most cumbersome login I've ever seen!
I was there for less than 12 hours so I can't rate anything else, except to say that the fitness center looked adequate but small.
I definitely would stay here again – in a renovated room!
