BEDBUGS!

Packing up to go home after a one night stay. Pulled back the blanket and saw a critter scurrying for cover. Grabbed it, googled it and behold, a bedbug. Mgmt. refunded our $ and offered to wash our clothes for us but we had to get back home. Despite all out efforts to keep the bugs out of our house, we got them. It costs lots of $, talking thousands, to get rid of these. Find another hotel. They hotel was completely unsympathetic and refused to help cover any of the costs incurred.

Subpar Hotel Chain Experience

Stained carpets, dirty ironing board, late airport shuttle, decor from the Reagan era, horrible plasma TV picture, no iPod docking station on room clock radio - only stayed here because of Orbitz package discount - not worth it.

Room with a view??

This was our second stay at this hotel. Previously, we went with the cheaper rate & received a room on the river about 6 floors up--room was small, but view & staff were nice. This time decided to go with more expensive registration that advertised larger "suite at club level" with view of river & microwave & fridge amenities--thinking the room would be larger. Unfortunately, we got a view of the top of the parking deck & dilapidated buildings of downtown. The fridge/microwave cabinet used up space that was already not "there" in the smaller, cheaper room. Should have gone cheaper...at least I would have felt I got my money's worth...

Mediocre Throughout

The room was completely bland. Althought it was clean it lacked anything to make it comfortable. The tv was old and small. For the price it should have been nicer throughout.

The hotel restaurant, Legends, was a mess. Woefully understaffed

Bad internet service

Stayed 2 nights, both nights the wireless internet service kept going in and out; would work for 5 minutes then shut down. Another person i was traveling with had the same problem. When i asked at the front desk if anyone else had reported a problem, i was told i could call the administrator help line.

Try dinner at the Next Door Bar & Grill. Its name sounds like it's a sports bar or something similar, but it is not. Upscale dining, with an eclectic menu, great service & atmosphere.

A decent place to stay.

It's okay if you are visiting town for for business or, like me, for auditioning at the Eastman School of Music. Location was convenient. The place is kind of old and I've noticed a spider's web in the corner.

Adequate For Business Travel

The hotel was adequate and well situated for business. There was sufficient space, wifi and coffee maker in the room. The air conditioning was noisy, but adequate.
