"We were upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite on the top floor. The accommodations were superb, and the views were magnificent. The staff was responsive when we had a small issue with the TV remote control. We'll stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it.2019-10-18"

"The line at check-in was long, and the hotel clerk said the coupon packets were locked in the manager's office. I tried calling repeatedly, but no one answered the phone, so I finally went back down and had to wait 30 minutes to get the packet. Don't stay here.2018-05-24"
"The hotel room didn't have any heat; we were moved to another room, but there was no hot water in the morning for showers. The 9th floor was dirty, poorly lit, and the elevators didn't always work. Find another place to stay.2017-11-27"

"The rates seemed high, but the hotel room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. We got a good night's sleep. We were a bit unhappy that everything cost extra, including a fridge. No soda vending machine on our floor.2018-04-09"
"An unpleasant experience. I asked for a 1st floor room and was given a room on the top floor far from the elevator. Towels weren't replaced daily unless a request was made in advance. During my 4-day stay, my room was never cleaned. The ice machine was in the basement. The hotel entrance was on a busy street, so loading luggage was inconvenient. Good variety of microwavable breakfast items and liberal breakfast hours.2021-08-21"
"Our room was clean, the bedsheets were fresh, and the carpet wasn't stained. The bathroom had new fixtures, and the shower had a glass door. The decor was spartan, but it was a good value. The hotel lobby was large, clean, and bright, with laminate flooring. The elevators were clean. Located in a seedy neighborhood, but it's a good option. 2021-07-12"

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.
