Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great check in. Super friendly staff. Location is perfect for access to state street. Only negative was loud exhaust fans in the bathrooms that woke us up when our neighbors came back to their room at 2am.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
It was a nice enough place. They didn’t enforce masks for the guests unfortunately. Probably should’ve cost about half of what they were charging. It is clean, and in a convenient location to state street and tons of restaurants/shopping.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We liked the convenience of the location to shopping, food and activities. Enjoyed the continental breakfast and the outdoor lounge on the second floor. There were a lot of homeless around the area and parking on premise was at a premium which we do understand.
