Inside the room, the heating unit was extremely loud whenever it started/stopped blowing air. It was 40 outside, so too cold to keep the heat off but not cold enough to be able to keep the fan
blowing constantly for white noise. So I woke up every time the fan turned on. When the fan was off, I could hear everyone who walked by in the hallway, the elevator down the hall, the vending machine...everything as though they were right next to my bed.
The bathroom was probably as clean as it could get, despite the chipping paint and other signs of wear and tear. My room was probably due for a reno
The hotel was under renovation and didn't have restaurant/room service in the evening, which is fine, but I wish I had known about that before arriving. There are takeout places nearby, but looking up the options was one more to-do before I could kick back and relax.
The main thing saving this hotel was the friendly staff who were patient and helpful with my questions. There was a snafu with the parking lot; the machine wouldn't give me a ticket and I was concerned about being able to leave. To my surprise, they removed the $12 parking charge from my bill. They might have done this for everyone, but they were nice.
The cleaning lady was also really sweet when I saw her in the hallway. She was cheerful and friendly, but not nosy/chatty/awkward [Less]
