Early flight departure stay

We wanted a hotel in town to see the sights before our early morning flight. The hotel was in an excellent location to see the sights and still was close enough to the airport. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only down side was the room was a little small.

Large and airy room with comfy beds, decent bathroom and vanity area for girls who need makeup space. Friendly and courteous staff, convenient location and value-priced, so two thumbs up.

Nice and well located

This was great. They have a pool, gym, and sauna we utilized, which were all small, but nice to have. The hotel is clean, quiet and attractive. Room service was ok, not great, but better than most hotels. It was perfect for what we needed. Would definitely stay there again.

Great location. Noisy rooms

The location is great and the rooms are clean, but you can hear everything going on in the hallway and in the rooms next to you. It's a fine room for under $120 a night. Just wish I didn't have to listen to everyone using the vending machine right outside my room.

Great Hotel

Had a great stay at this hotel. The interior is decorated nicely. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Self parking is adjacent to the hotel. Have to walk outside to parking but not a big deal. Overall, highly recommended.

Great view at a great value

Got a corner room on the 14th floor overlooking the street with a direct view of the clock tower, which was awesome and quite a pleasant surprise. No continental breakfast, and the only option was a breakfast buffet for $20 bucks or so that we didn't try. Checkin staff were nice and they brought up a shower cap within 10 minutes of our request. Did not use the pool or the gym. Room and shower were great, although the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Overall great stay for a little over $100. However, parking for one day was $25. Wireless internet was an extra $10 and it was barely worth it it was so slow.

Very good weekend for me and my fiance.

Customer service warm and friendly, and my room was near the elevator. All and all it wasn't bad at all.
