The outside and lobby were shabby. The surrounding area is a bit depressing.
However, the hotel is near a bunch of really interesting spots - city hall (or equivalent) courthouse, library, museum
and within about 2 blocks of the train station. There were some cute shops too, including a record store Mr. Mikes which had a surprisingly good selection.
Also a lovely shop with hard to get products like african black soap and Nag Champa, the real Nag Champa.
Excellent Service with everything: front desk, parking, consierge and cleaning were all really helpful and polite.
the pool although deserted when I arrived, was heated and clean, and really super deep - went up to 9 feet. Loved that.
plenty of supplies, towels, free coffee, soap and a controllable thermostat in the room made me want to just camp out in there all day.
The bed was a pillow top, there were four huge pillows and I slept better than I have in months, no joke. Wifi good but slow, TV had a million channels. view was the parking lot but the sun shone in nicely. Really good stay. [Less]
