Very new building, modern design. Rooms were quiet and the sink/fridge/toaster and dishes were a helpful addition.

The room was very tidy and clean. Also it was nice to see vinyl planks as a flooring which tons better than traditional carpeting for allergy sufferers like myself. Bathroom was nice and clean as well!

Great size space, nice little kitchenette that was well equipped, and close enough for walking to many local restaurants and shops.

Great hotel. Centrally located, clean rooms; helpful staff; and they take COVID-19 seriously.

The pictures on Orbitz are not of the actual property so that was a little deceiving. Really did not feel safe in the location downtown as the drive to get there showed that there were protests recently that got out of hand and there were so many buildings full of profane graffiti. It was very concerning as I had small children with. This hotel is pet friendly which is ok but my 3 year old son had a dog attempt to attack him right out of the elevator. Thankfully my father was able to get between him and the dog and the dog bit my father in the back of the leg. There was no bedding in the room for the pull out couch and they wouldn't bring it up, we had to go down to get it. Beautiful hotel but definitely would not stay here again just due to our experience.
