2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
1) info on website inadequate. Doesn't say that there is a shuttle to and from airport or that it only comes every 45 minutes. O, when it starts in the morning or when it finishes. 2) There is supposed to be WiFi. In my room, there wasn't. Front desk promised help; it never came.

The Front Desk Agent was AMAZING!! She was very friendly and explained the parking, amenities, food/delivery options. Great Customer Service!! The room was clean and beds were very comfortable. The only issue I had was in the morning, one of tables of the continental breakfast was extremely wobbly and spilled my coffee all over the table just setting the cup down. Not a big deal, but if someone was going to an interview or giving an important presentation and it spilled all over them, may not have been too pleasant!!

Nothing special here. It is a renovated property. The property did seem well cleaned. A sign for the concierge takes you to to a rack of brochures and no maps of the city. Breakfast provided. It was ok- rather bland. Day staff was good. Evening staff not so much. Shuttle runs only in morning and evening, costing us an unexpected Uber trip from airport.

Nothing unique, this hotel is not maintained well, the lock for the room is difficult to open,look old, so looks not very clean, staff’s didn’t show welcoming. They looks very cool. Price looks cheap, but they charge for parking $12.99 in this location is not reasonable( it is not downtown or financial district).
