Centrally located downtownHard to regulate heat/AC. Lots of night time sirens. Otherwise comfortable and attractive. Beware of hidden costs; high parking fee and " guest Services?" I thought that's what the room rate was for: guest services.

It was ok.If you planning for staying short time i think this hotel is not a bad choice. The water pressure are very low, feels like splash than shower. Fridge its not working, average cleanliness, toilet flush is bad. But overall its ok! because is dirt cheap.
