"Decent room with a comfortable bed, but the hotel lobby and hallways were disgusting, and the carpet looked like it had been there since the beginning of time. The bathroom was tiny, and I ran into a nightstand by the bathroom door.2019-07-16"
"The hotel was in desperate need of renovation. Our room smelled like smoke, and some lights and electrical outlets didn't work. The toilet ran constantly, and the bathtub wasn't clean. The front desk clerk was nice. I don't recommend staying here.2018-06-26"
"The people in the room upstairs made a lot of noise from 3:30 AM - 5:30 AM. The electrical outlets didn't work the 2nd night; I had to move things around to find plugs that worked. The smoke detector was broken and didn't have a battery, and the room smelled strongly of smoke. Stay at this hotel only as a last resort.2018-02-07"
"The hotel was just OK, and the accommodations were adequate. The shuttle to the game left without us, and we weren't told that there was no shuttle back.2017-09-28"
"I'd stay at this hotel again. Bring your swimsuit.2017-08-20"
"Great ambiance and historical setting. The hotel was short-staffed, but the room was clean. The phone didn't work, and maintenance couldn't repair it. The employees weren't able to answer my questions. The pool area was dirty. No continental breakfast the last day of my stay because the crew didn't turn up, and the floor wasn't clean.2022-04-17"
"Great staff; all the employees were accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel.2017-10-26"

The breakfast attendant kept things stocked, and the variety was nice, but waffle batter ran out and wasn't replenished 30 minutes before breakfast ended. I recommend staying here.2021-08-09"

"This hotel was a great choice in an otherwise expensive area. The customer service was exceptional. We really appreciated the shuttle and free parking, and the complimentary hot breakfast was wonderful. The only negatives were the somewhat uncomfortable bed and the small bathroom, but the positives definitely outweighed the negatives.2019-06-01"
"A horrible experience. Don't stay at this hotel.2018-10-21"

"Nice hotel. The room was clean and quiet. I had a lovely stay.2016-10-09"
"The hotel room overlooked the atrium, which I didn't like. Nice that it had a fridge and microwave, though.2016-06-21"
"The room was clean and well-appointed. The employees were friendly and helpful, and the courtesy van driver was prompt and friendly. The pool water was a bit chilly, but not unbearable. Good service at both restaurants, but the prices were high. Get directions to the parking ramp, as the entrance was difficult to find.2015-04-29"
"Not worth the price, though the view was nice and the bathroom was spacious. We weren't told that we'd have to call to have the room serviced. I called for clean cups and towels and they were brought up, but the dirty cups and towels weren't removed. The room and hallway carpeting needed vacuuming. No hotel information in the room. The employees were kind, and the valet service was excellent.2021-10-22"
"The bath was sub-par, and the hotel food was overpriced, but I had a great stay otherwise.2017-10-19"
"An expensive hotel. Everything was first-class until we tried the Citizen Restaurant for breakfast. The service was slow, the food was cold when it arrived, and we didn't get what we ordered. When I told the checkout clerk, I got a blank look.2017-10-12"
"The hotel staff provided awesome service.2016-02-17"
"We asked for room repairs and cleaning when we left on the shuttle, but nothing was done. The shuttled failed to pick us up after the Wild game. The complimentary breakfast was disorganized, and the food was cold. The on-site bar and restaurant were the bright light of our stay; the service and dining were excellent. Look for a different hotel.2018-01-17"
"The hotel charged extra for Internet access and parking.2016-09-05"
"We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. From the nice room to the cocktail reception and complimentary shuttle to the cooked-to-order omelet and coffee, everything was great. The only negative was that the bed sagged in the middle. Definitely a good experience overall.2016-02-03"
"The hotel staff was friendly and professional. I really enjoyed staying here.2015-10-13"
"Centrally located with access to the Green, Blue, and Red Line transit system. Clean room, and the view of the courtyard and lobby was nice. All the employees were friendly and helpful. Exceptional breakfast and evening happy hour. The shuttle service to X-Cel Center was great. I parked the car when I arrived, and didn't use it again until I left 3 days later. Highly recommend this hotel.2015-06-14"
"The hotel was clean and safe, and the beds were wonderful. The restaurant was closed on Monday, but everything else was great. I especially appreciated the shuttle to the university medical facility.2021-11-10"
"The hotel looked impressive, and the staff was friendly and informed. However, the coffee maker didn't work properly. Don't open the water bottles by the coffee maker; you'll be charged $5 each. We couldn't figure out how to turn on the light over the table.2020-12-30"
"This was the best hotel ever; we loved everything about it. The decor was so fun, as was the room key theme. We enjoyed trying to find the 4 hidden items in our room related to Prince. The staff was great, and the front desk clerks went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Book it.2020-10-09"
"The hotel was beautiful, unique, comfortable, and super clean. The soap and shampoo dispensers in the shower were empty, and the staff didn't provide any information about local restaurants or checkout time.2018-04-01"
"Nice hotel and great room. The service was good, but the food was just fair. The rooftop lounge was barren and seemed unfinished. The walkway to the restaurant wasn't open, and even when it was, it wasn't accessible from baggage claim. Once you've left the secure area, you must take a shuttle, which was a major design flaw.2019-03-24"
"Good hotel near the light rail. The check-in clerk let us in early, which was nice.2019-07-15"
"The hotel was clean, but I was disappointed that there was no whirlpool or complimentary breakfast. The pool was tiny. I expected more for the price.2019-06-23"
"A wonderful experience. Walk to the football stadium and close to everything. The hotel was nice and clean, and the staff was hospitable. Be sure to pull up in front to unload, otherwise you'll have to haul your luggage from the garage. Nothing at this hotel was free except in-room coffee and ice. The pool was small, but the exercise room was awesome. There was a tram that went everywhere I wanted to go.2017-12-20"
"This hotel had great employees who provided good service.2017-08-30"
"Great location. The hotel room was comfortable, and the employees were terrific. Stay here.2016-12-23"
"The room was updated, but the floors were dirty. The staff wasn't super helpful with instructions about parking and such; parking cost $32.2021-08-21"
"In trying to be trendy, this hotel missed the boat in comfort. The room was small and felt like a dorm room. The clock looked like a block of wood, and I couldn't figure out how to get the time to display. Even the lights weren't easy to operate. The hardwood floors didn't feel good on my tired feet, and the table looked like a picnic table and had uncomfortable chairs. There was a bench next to the table for some reason. If you like expensive and trendy without comfort, this is the place for you.2017-08-02"

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.
