Great location and price!

Room was really clean and great location. Walking distance to all the restaurants and bars, worth the cost and would go back again! Staff was really friendly.

Business Trip

The staff was great and friendly. My room was in "Egypt" though. I had a bunch of business meetings close to the hotel and everytime I had to go to my room it felt like the walk was a long, long ways. Also there were only two treadmills and a long line everytime I wanted to go for a run. I would recommend expanding the workout room.

Great location, great service.

I like that they are GREEN with energy use with the thermostat. You plug your card into a slot and the thermostat works at your setting. Unplug the card when you leave the room to save energy. The fitness center was adequate for cardio and free weights. The location to market square makes for a nice walk and fresh air. Great restaurants nearby on Gay Street, or in Market Square. Check out Woodruffs and/or the Nama Sushi restaurant. Food in hotel was fair.

Short Getaway

The hotel was really nice. The only thing wrong was the fact that we had double beds and they were relatively small. Overall a good experience.

Too noisy

Hotel and amenities are nice as long as you are in a renovated room. Staff were very attentive. The problem is the noise: the room walls seem extremely 'thin' and you can hear pretty much everything in your neighbor's room or the hallway. Even worse, the windows don't seem to control the traffic noise from Henley street at all. We heard every vehicle driving by, making sleep very difficult. If you stay here ask for a renovated room high up in the hotel and opposite Henley street.
