  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Hotel was hard to find from the street. Not a very big sign to see. There was a mix up with my reservation. The staff helped me get a room but their demeanor was as if they didn't really care about the mix up. The room we stayed in was a dog room. It looked like it. Stains on the carpet, the comforter was stained and it had hair when you pulled back the sheets. Parking was very compact. No real grass area to accommodate dogs to go potty which would be nice since it is suppose to be dog friendly.

    Hotel location was very convenient - close to just about everything. Check-in was quick and convenient, staff was friendly and helpful. There were additional cleaning precautions being done in light of the Coronavirus - staff wiping down and sanitizing common areas, trash cans, elevator buttons, etc. - which was really appreciated. Also loved the water bottle filling stations near the elevators. Room was clean and comfortable, and checkout via TV quick and easy. Would stay here again and would recommend.
