While this is in a nice location, I found the hotel very underwhelming. The public areas were very dingy. The room smelled of stale smoke. There was standing water in the sink because the stopper was broken. The tub faucet was running. The vending machine on my floor wouldn't accept dollar bills. The ice machine made a wide variety of annoying noises and produced no ice. The alarm clock wasn't plugged in and I couldn't find the outlet. The room was noisy. A drunk guy tried to get in my room at 3:30 in the morning, thinking it was his. And the elevator broke. If there was anyway for me to get a different hotel for my second night, I definitely would.

The room was super clean and the people at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. The pool was pretty big and ranged from 3ft to 8ft. Pretty good views from our fifth floor room. This hotel is in a great location. I will definitely visit again.

As many other reviewers can attest, they very often place incorrect charges on your card and are extremely unapologetic about it. In this case, I checked in earlier than my friend, whose card the charge for the whole stay would be going on. I explained to the front desk that the card I was giving them was only a debit and I didn't keep too much in my checking, so I needed to know if they were going to charge the whole room to it. They specifically told me the room would not be charged to my card, and that only a $75 "incidental" fee would be, but upon checkout would be returned to my account. Fine. Not even three hours later, my bank is calling me to inform me that I'm at a balance of -$500. They charged the full amount of $1600 and then the same front desk employee who made the mistake was bold enough to claim he doesn't know why I was surprised since he told me he was going to charge me. While on vacation, I went two days with no money. Thankfully my bank was able to get my money back quicker and waived the overdraft fee. Spoke to the front desk manager and he was very nice/apologetic and gave a reduced nightly rate. Final bill comes, and the reduced nightly rate is a measly $15/night. Will not be recommending this hotel to anyone, and if you're willing to spend money on good location, there's a Hilton right next door.

please please dont choose this hotel based on the star level without looking at reviews. the main lobby is nice and the staff are polite, my room was a nightmare. it REEKS of cigarette smoke smell despite being no-smoking. i was up all night because i couldnt breathe in the smell , the tv initially wasnt working but was fixed the wifi might be free but its slower than my thought process.. which is slow. im not even sure if this is going to post or if im going to disconnect for 15 minutes again also people in the next room were playing very loud music and i could hear all of it , also contributed to the no sleep thing i only went into the bathroom when i was half asleep but there were spots on the ceiling and 2 pipes out in the open i havent been to the pool yet since i dont really swim yea, okay, the location might be great, but whats the point going around town if you feel like passing out because you were up all night? its better worth your time/money to find a different hotel, since the train system is nice and isnt really a hassle

I had a room scheduled for 2 nights and a sudden family issue came up and the lady at the front desk was so rude and hung up on us. She said the only way we could cancel the room was to prove my family member was sick. How heartless can you be?! I understand there's deadlines for room cancellations but there are certain issues that you can't predict! They wouldn't even drop it down to a 1 night stay if I paid that instead of 2. Now I'm out at least a nights worth of money! Thanks a bunch!

Check-in was delayed by 90 minutes because of lack of housekeeping staff. Request for a fan was not sent up until second reminder call. Said we couldn't use the hotel pool while we waited for a room to become available. Rooms looked decent. Not very comfortable needs (mattresses need replacement). Hallway on 7th floor smelled like old cigarette smoke. Would not recommend a stay here.

Good service, friendly, helpful staff. The room was nice, if a little smaller than I expected, and there was a great view from our window (15th floor). Convenient location for going to the museums as well as the concert venue we were there for.

The hotel was a great location for the price! However there was no fridge in our room, but the staff was very quick to get one installed. Also the bath tub did not actually plug, it still slowly leaked. Overall I cannot complain about the value of the hotel, and all staff was very friendly and helpful, and everything seemed very clean and comfortable.
