"The hotel didn't have a swimming pool.2019-06-13"
"The hotel needed some remodeling, and desperately needed improved ventilation. The room felt damp, and the carpet felt disgusting on our feet. Even the bedding felt cool and wet. Bring your slippers and make it a 1-night stay only.2018-08-18"

"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"

"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 too expensive for what we got. Everything was good except the shuttle left us stranded at an event during the winter carnage. We called 3 times an hour and a half before the shuttle hours ended. I won't stay here again.2018-01-31"

"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"

"An excellent hotel for the price. The room was large, and the beds were comfortable. I wish I'd brought my swimsuit. We got in late and needed milk to take with medications; the front desk clerk handed a carton to me on the spot. Bring food since the room has a kitchenette with dishes.2015-11-13"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
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.
