Nice and well located

This was great. They have a pool, gym, and sauna we utilized, which were all small, but nice to have. The hotel is clean, quiet and attractive. Room service was ok, not great, but better than most hotels. It was perfect for what we needed. Would definitely stay there again.

Great location. Noisy rooms

The location is great and the rooms are clean, but you can hear everything going on in the hallway and in the rooms next to you. It's a fine room for under $120 a night. Just wish I didn't have to listen to everyone using the vending machine right outside my room.

Great Hotel

Had a great stay at this hotel. The interior is decorated nicely. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Self parking is adjacent to the hotel. Have to walk outside to parking but not a big deal. Overall, highly recommended.

Great view at a great value

Got a corner room on the 14th floor overlooking the street with a direct view of the clock tower, which was awesome and quite a pleasant surprise. No continental breakfast, and the only option was a breakfast buffet for $20 bucks or so that we didn't try. Checkin staff were nice and they brought up a shower cap within 10 minutes of our request. Did not use the pool or the gym. Room and shower were great, although the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Overall great stay for a little over $100. However, parking for one day was $25. Wireless internet was an extra $10 and it was barely worth it it was so slow.

Very good weekend for me and my fiance.

Customer service warm and friendly, and my room was near the elevator. All and all it wasn't bad at all.

Great place to stay to see a concert or show!

The location to the theaters and restaurants is perfect. Just walk out the door. The staff was so accommodating. We requested a room with a better view and we got it with no hassle.

A nice place to stay

Our room was very clean and orderly. The bed was especially comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. My only complaint was the constant sound of the elevator running throughout the night.

This hotel was central to many great restaurants and bars which made our stay extra nice since we could walk short distances without having to find parking or paying for a cab.
