very noisy

The hotel is in renovation process inside and outside. Very noisy as we could hear everything in the bedroom. The windows don't close very well. Call before to find out if they are still renovating.

The hotel was undergoing MAJOR renovation. We had to walk through hallways where workmen were reconstructing the space, putting down floors, painting, etc. However, the second floor room was fine. No work going on at our end of the hallway. It just wasn't special.

People are fantastic

Even though there is no restaurant on site, and the rooms are like every other hotel, the STAFF IS THE BEST. Being a seasoned traveler, this hotel has the nicest, genuine, workers I have encountered. And Mary, is OUTSTANDING. These people make you feel like you are home with your closest friends. Will be back to this one.

Cheer comp overload

Hotel was in great location and offered free shuttle service. Unfortunately, the shuttle only held 6-9 people and coming home from the convention center was a nightmare. You had to wait in the freezing cold for the shuttle and there were about 50 people waiting so you had to wait until shuttle filled up, went back to hotel and returned. My tired cheerleader who had been up since 6 am had to stand in the cold for 45 minutes at 8:00 pm before we could access the shuttle. Employees probably overwhelmed but not very friendly. Breakfast great. Beds extremely uncomfortable!
