Would recommend it highly

Place is very busy and noisy

Very nice I wish I stay more day maybe next time

I enjoyed the cleanliness and the atmosphere. The breakfast buffet and happy hour were to die for. The staff was very friendly and professional.

Close to the Arena and excellent breakfast

Faucet broke and leaking Check in asked us for room payment Third party has not paid

Close to nearby venues

The hotel has some great views, and also some bad views, ie of the parking garage. I have a feeling if you book on orbitz, they give you the rooms with the bad views. The lobby has an ok bar, and also their happy hour bar that looks like a cafeteria. The lobby itself is very unattractive for a large urban high rise hotel. Bell staff and valet seemed a bit unorganized on the day we were there. Shower water temps fluctuate like a roller coaster. Bath towels are like sandpaper. Hotel staff was not helpful in trying to find a lost item (they were too busy to care). Rate was inexpensive, so i guess you get what you pay for. I probably would have overlooked everything else if i got one of those rooms overlooking the harbor. They should really get rid of the low city view rooms or pay people to stay there.

We had to pay for valet parking, but parked the car ourself. Other then then that, our stay was great and we will continue to come back due to the location being a short walk to the arena.

convenience

Valet ONLY parking for $35. When we were ready to leave we waited in the garage with many other guest for over 30 minutes. It was total chaos. We scanned our ticket as instructed and the reply was to come down “within 5 minutes” which we did. Besides all the car exhaust, they allowed people to smoke there. It was terrible. They lost a lady’s car. Would not go back just because of this fiasco.

It seemed old dated smelly- like smoke and heavily scented to cover up smoke

Too noisy

The hotel was beautiful and in a great location. Trolley right outside the door was very convenient.

Waited 45 minutes in a line to get our car. They would not release anyone's keys without the valet getting the cars.

Very nice rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was hot and plentiful
