4/10 Fair

Very disappointed with my stay
I dealing with cleanliness the garbage pail on my floor were overflowing. I never heard of a hotel charging for a bottle of water. One clerk wanted to charge me $3 on one car and another $2 the next day. The a/c conked out at 2 in the morning and when I repeatedly tried to call the front desk all I got was a busy signal. I asked the front desk clerk for a cup to brush my teeth and they didn’t have any. Then I opened up the dishwasher to find a glass there. Surprised ( but not really) that the staff didn’t know what was in the rooms.

10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay in the city
Hotel staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Upon arrival, I couldn't find a luggage cart and the front desk clerk went and found one for me. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Very quiet rooms. The breakfast buffet was good, not great, but I did go 30 minutes before it ended. Parking in the city anywhere is an issue, but the hotel does offer valet parking. Because we were going to be in and out to move a college student into his dorm, we parked in a public parking garage a block away above the Acme store. It was convenient and safe. All in all, highly recommend this hotel!
