4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Enjoyed my stay, and the room was nice. A few disappointments--the desk was too high (or the chair too low) for comfortable working; the window shade let in too much light early in the morning (the heavy curtains were decorative only); and one of the reading lights was broken. But those are minor issues--all the rest was great.

Breakfast was grab and go, not sit down. No eggs, waffles, biscuits, etc. Cold bagels, cereal that’s all. Front desk didn’t know where to send us for a real breakfast even. Poorly trained front desk staff from that standpoint. The signage in the front lobby bragged about the great breakfast we could expect. NOT! Plus $10 to park. No surprises? As if.
