10.0 Excellent
Pros:Loved the accommodations and the staff.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:The hotel was located very close to downtown, with tons of restaurants and bars at our doorstep. Our room (a triple) was huge, with a very nice, large bathroom and even a sort of living room. Everything seemed clean.
Cons:Due to its location downtown, it was rather noisy at night from the bar goers. However, it being close to downtown was a plus, so it was a trade off. Also, since the hotel took over the neighboring building, it was a bit of a trek to get to our room. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but I expect that from a continental breakfast
3.7 Poor
Cons:There was little to no water pressure in the shower head even though they had expensive rain shower heads. It was a slow drip to take a shower. The room smells musty because it's OLD. We had 3 beds in our room, 2 of which were not cleaned because their covers were dusty - probably from people using the larger king bed and not the 2 smaller twin beds in the room. The mattresses were springy and soft - like sleeping on a trampoline. The hot water pot was full of white and black calcium build up that was never cleaned. The only good thing was the renovated bathroom with white tiles and a new toilet. There wasn't even free parking like my booking suggested. It was $10 for over night parking at a garage nearby.
5.7 Passable
Pros:Someone clearly put a lot of money into giving the hotel a face lift in the recent past. It looks up to date.
Cons:Our room had three single beds in it that were crammed into the space you'd normally find a single queen bed. The light above the bathroom sink had come out of the wall and was flickering because of a bad connection. Overall the hotel seemed a bit dirty; just small impressions like the stainless steel elevators being covered in finger prints.
