"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"

"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 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.

"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"

"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"

We got a room change right away, along with a $15 deduction for the hassle. The 2nd room smelled less musty, but the door was hard to close. Nice lobby and good breakfast bar. The attendant did a great job.2017-08-17"

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.
