disappointing...

Was a really pleasant lobby but room was less than satisfactory. Bedsheets had stains, bathtowels were rough and bathtub had some lining which was bubbling. They kindly changed my room but the second tub had the same problem. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone especially foe the price point.
