My family and I Pricelined this hotel after arriving in the area earlier than originally planned. I'm so thankful this was the bid that worked! Our room was spotless and perfect for our family of 4, complete with a full kitchen. Breakfast was wonderful--perfect for filling up before a day of sightseeing. Staff was extremely helpful in giving us directions...

We have stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions now, and have experienced the two room and one room suites. The hotel and rooms are clean, the breakfast is free and great, the location is fantastic, and the complimentary shuttle very convenient. WiFi is complimentary and works fine. Parking is not free and actually somewhat expensive. Ultimately, we love...

I stayed here overnight just after thanksgiving (Black Friday) and it was a good stay.

Stayed there a few times and it was very nice. However I had to pay for parking. Also if you stay on the wrong side of the hotel the metro will be right outside your window. I stayed on the other end and it was very silent.
