It's a great location but parking is a problem. They only offer valet parking which is frustrating when you're in and out running errands. Room was very clean but shower had some mold and conditioner was out. Staff was friendly.

Check in at midnight after driving all night. Once we were settled into the room we noticed the ac was really loud. The fan made a horrible squeaking noise when it came on. We tried to deal with it but by 5 am we found it impossible to sleep. We called the front desk and they told us all they could do was switch our rooms. That was perfectly fine with us. He told us it would be a few minutes. While we waiting to hear back we packed everything and got dressed. It took a while before we heard back. The desk clerk told us he could switch out rooms because we booked through Expedia and not directly with the hotel. I told him we cannot sleep and just paid $200 for the room. And now we were sitting there dressed and packed. He said he would have to find someone with an “override code”. We continued to wait. Finally we were brought a key. We went down to the new room, which was much smaller. We were never offered any kind of concession for the inconvenience or being jerked around by the staff in the middle of the night. We never heard from a manager. We won’t ever stay there again.
