4/10 Poor


Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room was cold, cavernous, noisy, and echoey. Couldn't heat up the room because the heater was too loud. Told the front desk, expecting a different room or something but they just said that the hotel was in transition because it was purchased by another company. They waived the parking fee but said they couldn't do anything else for me because I booked through expedia---expedia refunded a little money but not much. Miserable and disappointing experience.

Disliked: Amenities
Everyone at the hotel was very nice. The staff was terrific. The place itself was nothing great. There was no rod in my closet and no hangers. The safe didn’t work. There is no furniture in a large room that I paid extra for - just a bed and a long desk/dresser with an office chair and 2 night tables. No chairs, no couch, no table. In addition there was very little light in the room, just two small lights on either side of the bed, a hall entrance light, and a small dim desk lamp. There’s no phone in the room. And I booked it because it had nice looking restaurants and a cool bar. They stopped serving food every night at 9 and the bar closed at 10. Again, nice staff - just the accommodations were pretty bad considering it’s the nicest hotel in Lawrence, or at least the most expensive.
