Room needed better soundproofing - sofa bed was dirty and in terrible condition - staff stood around talking instead of assisting guests - front entrance was usually blocked by vehicles, leaving nowhere for guests to load and unload their vehicles - one employee asked us to move while we were still unloading; when I tried to talk to the manager about it, he told me he was busy helping another guest - had to pay for parking - wouldn't stay again.
Convenient location - room was clean - staff was hospitable - had to pay for parking.
Not a good value - room was grubby - AC didn't work well - hallway was dirty - nice lobby.
Nice suite - plenty of hot water for showers - front desk clerks were helpful - exercise room had towels and bottled water - awesome continental breakfast and evening reception - great stay.
