Overall the experience was good. The hotel is taking extra care measure for COVID. Only thing is they only have valet parking, $38 overnight. You can self park in the structure next door. My Expedia VIP credit covered the parking fee, but then there’s no other perks for the VIP.

The room was very clean and felt safe.All the staff were wearing mask the whole time. Even though the restaurant wasn’t open there were several food options around available for delivery. Would definitely come back here.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I've stayed here numerous times since they first opened and remember its glory days. Unfortunately, the rooms have seen better days. They appear worn and even the sheets and towels appear ragged. There is no room service, in-room dining and even the restaurant is closed (due to Covid). Staff is minimal. Overall, disappointing experience.
