"I loved this hotel, and the restaurants were good. The hotel name wasn't on the building, though, so my friend had a hard time finding it.2019-11-16"
"Excellent service and hospitality. Don't think twice; book a room at this hotel.2018-12-07"

"This is the best place to stay if you're going to the BJCC, but it's not cheap. Nice hotel with wonderful employees and good food. Parking, however, was a mess. There was a shared garage with the convention center, and both self-parking and valet parking were on the 5th and 6th floors; it was a long walk back to the hotel. No vending machines, just ice. Good restaurants at the adjacent "Uptown" development.2018-01-21"

"I was happy with the room and the hotel staff.2017-03-07"
"No stationery in the room, so I had to look up the hotel address on the Internet. The room service tray had to be set up on the bed, and not enough utensils were provided. The front desk clerk handled all calls, including room service, so expect a wait if it's busy. The staff was responsive and friendly, and the bartenders were superb. Good breakfast and dinner. 2017-02-20"
"Close to the hospital. I stayed at this hotel for a week. It was extremely clean, with great rooms and comfortable beds. The kitchen had everything I needed. The employees were nice, caring, and extremely helpful. I hated to leave.2020-01-08"
"The hotel was clean, and the clerks were nice and helpful; I got a text telling me to let them know if we needed anything. I did complain about the noisy people upstairs, and the staff said they'd send security up to ask them to be quiet. The attendants at the complimentary breakfast were overly stern with guests. Other than that, we had a good stay and would come back. Ask for a room on the top floor if you want quiet, though.2019-04-09"

"The room was half-renovated. The TV didn't work, and the staff couldn't fix it. The elevators were noisy and needed to be replaced. The employees were nice. No on-site breakfast, just a voucher for a restaurant in the neighborhood. Don't stay at this hotel.2017-08-13"

"The hotel was dated and nasty. The lobby looked nice, but it was all downhill from there. The only positive was the friendly staff. We took the shuttle downtown, and called to be picked up at 9:45. At 11:15, we gave up and called a taxi. Find somewhere else to stay.2015-06-16"
"The small, square pillows were uncomfortable. Disappointed that I had to pay for breakfast at this hotel.2015-04-18"
"The entrance and the dining area were nice, but as soon as I got in the elevator, it was like a different hotel. The hallways had trash in them; the carpet was stained and needed vacuuming. The room carpet was so dirty I never took off my shoes. The deadbolt lock was broken, and there was a makeshift contraption in its place. Didn't get requested wake-up call. I went to five floors before I found a working ice machine. Front desk clerk didn't seem to care. But the breakfast buffet was good. Won't stay again.2015-03-18"
"Nice-looking hotel, but the staff was unprofessional. It took 20 minutes to check in. We won't be back.2016-01-04"
"Affordable hotel. Our room had a leaking toilet that flooded the floor a bit, so we had to change rooms. We went out, and the room was infested with ants by the time we returned. They were everywhere, even in the bed and fridge. We had to change rooms again, but the new room also had ants. We were finally moved to an ant-free room, but it smelled musty. By this time, it was 5 AM. We weren't charged for our stay, and the manager was apologetic, but I wouldn't stay again.2016-01-04"

"The hotel room was small, and there was nowhere to put our luggage. There was a desk, but with all the coffee gear there, there was no space for working. The desk chair was so close to the bed that I couldn't pull it out. There was a small fridge. The room was always too warm or too cold, and the heater was loud. Breakfast was good. We wouldn't stay here again.2020-01-22"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
