"The hotel met our needs. Walk to restaurants and sports bars; not far from the marketplace and law school. The room was comfortable and had a nice balcony, but I didn't like that our room was at the end of a long corridor far from the lobby. We tried to go down the stairs closer to our room and ended up in the kitchen with no access to the lobby. No coffee in the lobby, but lemon water was provided. The staff was amazing. Nice complimentary breakfast. Only valet parking was available. 2016-08-26"

"An absolutely stunning hotel. A grand entrance led to a magnificent front desk, and the room was beautifully decorated. I parked up the street instead of using valet parking.

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.
