6.5 Okay
Staff was great. Very helpful and attentive. Nice to have the burger restaurant attached to the hotel.

Hotel is older. Rooms are a bit small for my liking. Maintenance has to come to your room to open vents to allow HVAC to work (bit of a hassle). Bathroom sink smaller (can't put much on it).

7.1 Good

Corridors seem cramped as is elevator access when using a luggage cart.

6.2 Okay
Location was great and rooms were good. Liked the valet service. Breakfast was extra.

Could not print or scan anything -This was disappointing to say the least Why would you even call it a business center when the most basic facilities are missing? Wi-fi went out for more than half a day during a weekday. Not what you would expect in a downtown inn.
