Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mixed Reaction The hotel was undergoing renovations, so some of the flaws we encountered were due to that fact. However, we found that the new chairs in the rooms were totally unusable. They were way too hard for sitting on, so the only chair available was the desk chair. The bathroom hadn't been equipped with a towel rack or towel bars yet, so the vanity was taken up by the stack of towels. However, the towels were big and soft and clean and fluffy and there were plenty of them. The bathroom and in fact, the entire room were brightly lighted, which we appreciated. There were plenty of electrical outlets for charging devices, and they were in convenient locations. The beds were comfortable--however, I am very short and I could not climb into the bed unassisted, so I used the very hard cushion from the chair as a step up. My friend, who is also senior and short, was able to obtain a step stool, but the front desk only had one. I think the beds are so high off the ground that this will be a problem for height-challenged people like myself. My husband I both enjoyed the breakfast offering. There was a wide selection of both hot and cold foods, and we both found something to eat. March 2, 2015
