The bottom desk man was excellent and professional. The bottom men's restrooms were all out of order. The printer was also broke. I would not recommend this facility for others or plan on returning.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disappointed that I booked this hotel so I could have access to the airport shuttle for my one night trip. Turns out they haven't had a shuttle for over a year. The front deck said it's been updated on their webpage but maybe not 3rd parties. Checked the official IHG webpage back in my room, still states their is a shuttle.....

Liked: Staff & service
We liked how close it was to downtown but we did not like how when we arrived at the room we had no lightbulbs, no coffee maker, no trash can and no remote, and on final night the remote stopped working thankfully the hotel compensated us for that.
