The room spelled of marijuana, the elevators where overly crowded, the freight elevator was shut down which lead to the staff having to utilize the guest elevator.

The hotel was close to the venue we attended as well as near some nice places to dine and shop. The room was clean and staff were friendly which was great. The parking is a bit of a challenge as the ramps are all narrow with large concrete walls making it a tight squeeze for our midsize suv. The elevator system was partially down on the two days we were there creating wait times of 10 minutes just to get on. All in all it was a good place to stay.
