6.2 Okay
Pros:Location was very good.
Cons:I thought the hotel was very overpriced for such a small room that should've been remodeled. The carpet looked old and the colors of the room were outdated. The shower head/bathroom sink did look new. For the price we paid, we should've gotten some kind of small breakfast. It was extremely, extremely expensive to stay in an OK hotel. They sure made the hotel lobby look festive for the holidays. And when they asked me after a couple of days through email on how our stay was, I was honest with them and they wanted to know how to communicate with me. I wrote down… By email… And I never heard back from them.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The check-in process was quite easy and the hotel was centrally located.
Cons:We were placed on the mezzanine floor which is impossible to reach and the rooms were tiny with a window leading directly to a wall.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Great shower.
Cons:No wifi in room Convoluted route to room.
