What we liked was the proximity to the event center, and what we didn't like was the breakfast, in part due to COVID 19 restrictions.

We had a problem with our room, so they put us in a King Sized suite which was really nice at no extra charge. Cleanest and friendliest chain of hotels that we have ever stayed in. Whenever we travel, this chain is our number 1choice.

Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities
The front desk agent barely gave us the time of day and acted annoyed when we asked questions. She also failed to mention that their wifi and tv package was down. I think they could have done a better job explaining that before booking. Also the bed is hard, the pillows are uncomfortable and its the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in.
