    The staff was very helpful as well as some guests we ran into. Accommodations were great. Overall great service.

    Everything was amazing.

  • Group of friends

    Best value of any downtown hotel. Location was very convenient. Staff very accomodating. Suite was compact with nice little kitchen. Outside patio was a nice feature. I left a few belongings in the room when I checked out. I applaud the honesty of the housekeeping staff and the courteousness of the hotel clerks in helping to return the items I had forgotten. The housekeeper was very friendly and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. He really seemed to take pride in doing his job well.

    Air conditoner was noisy and had no onsite parking--had to use a public lot and pay.

    I liked the location. The staff was very helpful in answering my questions since I didn't know my way around.

    I left early but the lack of parking would have been a problem would have been troublesome if I had later plans.

    The value is phenomenal when you consider the location. I can't imagine why anyone stays anywhere else.

    Was close to resturants and concert venue. Room was small, but very clean. Great for the price.

  • Group of friends

    The only thing I ended up liking was the location. It's right in downtown and close to where I was working

    Don't stay here. I reserved a two bedroom sweet for myself and a co-worker, and they gave us a single bed. You have to feed the meter at 7am because to hotel offers nowhere to park. Hallways and rooms are stale. The night employee refused to open the metal counter window more than one inch to slide my credit card through. Never saw what she looked like. Much better value elsewhere. This place reminds me of $20 hostels, except they charge $130

    Near major commercial locations

    Hotel had informed me no room availability 2 days ago eventhough I had a confirmed booking. They were ready to give me accommodation at some other place far from downtown with no taxi fare paid by them. I had to fight for my rights and finally got a room in their hotel itself.

    The staff were very nice & the location perfect for our schedule---We went to an event @ the Toyota Center & the hotel was only abt. 5 mins. walking distance away.

    Not all of the info. on the website was accurate---ie free parking . Also, one of the nt. stands' drawer wouldn't stay closed(someone had put balled up paper under it to try to balance it better).

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    close to everything. Good clean rooms, great staff

    parking can be a problem during events, but that is true everywhere downtown
