Family wedding

Staff friendly and courteous, very accommodating. Beds were comfortable, beautiful view from room. Issue with linen cleanliness: yellow stains on both comforters. The only other complaint we had was the noise. We could hear neighbors' conversations. Our first night the noise kept us awake until 4:30am. The couple next door was fighting, yelling expletives and slamming doors. Had to call security twice for the people to be quiet. Aside from dirty comforters and noise, overall experience was good.

My room was not ready when I arrived and I waited for about 3 hours. And I ended up with a handicapped room. The room was old with wallpaper falling off.mostly clean. My friends stayed in another room and had a much better experience. The staff was helpful and friendly. And the location is perfect.

Great stay!

We stayed for just one night, but it was an amazing stay. The staff was super friendly and very attentive. The location was perfect, in a great neighborhood and a couple of blocks from shops and restaurants.

Disappointing experience

My husband and I booked the room the evening of the 22nd(April). We were never told this was an a adjoining room. The people in room 517 were so noisy I hardly got any sleep! Also there was mold on the ceiling which my husband took a picture of. For the money we paid for this room we were totally disappointed and doubt if we would ever come back. Peggy Gore

Average hotel at above average price

Room was very plain and needed renovating for the price of the room. Although the room was comfortable enough,it was not worth the price I paid.
