Hotel staff was very friendly. The room and view were great. Located in a great part of the city, walking distance to all of the downtown locations. The rooms are very reasonably priced. Would definitely come back. The noise level was acceptable and the city view was spectacular!

We chose it because it was affordable and close to the start line of a half marathon I was to run. The location was great, but the hotel itself was so-so. It smelled funny in the room but opening the windows helped air it out. The ice machine only worked on one floor (24); we were told an engineer would... More

Easy access to the start line and about a mile from the finish. I would recommend this hotel for the Petco 1/2 too. The room was nice a clean. However, the shower was not as nice as other hotels........

I was here on business. Very nice hotel and all rooms are suites. The lobby bar restaurant was very good. Local beers on draft and the salads and Brussels sprout appetizer was very good. Wine was a bit overpriced, but meal items are reasonable and good quality. It's close to the airport. Expect to pay about $35 to park overnight.

The air conditioner did not work all weekend and the room was 83 degrees. The housekeeper was rude when I called to inquiry about a lost item. She seemed irritated by my call and said she would call me back and hasn't. I was also placed on hold for 15 minutes until I hung up and called back.

Beautiful hotel, very nice service, super clean and spacious rooms. The hotel was a perfect location for the USA Invitation Half Marathon (walking distance). Self parking is $29, there is a little lot across the street for $20. My only complaint is that the hotel restaurant didn't have 1 plant based food item. Everything was meat, meat, meat. So frustrating.

I booked a suite w/ two beds (for 2 adults/2 children) weeks in advance. When I arrived (2 hrs after checkin) I was told there were no more rooms with two beds, because they like to over-book, but they could give me a king & 2 roll-a-ways. When I insisted they give me what I requested, they "found" me a... More
