I was told parking would cost $15 per day and would be put on my bill. On the second day of my stay when I came out to my car the parking attendant told me the hotel had not covered my parking and that I was "stealing" parking from the parking company. When I asked at the front desk why this happened I was told I had to ask each day for parking to be covered but was NOT told this at check in.

Fire alarm went off at 1130 pm said stay calm use stairs only, my wife and I were on 10th floor. Fortunately, it was a false alarm. At check out the next morning, I asked if there was any compensation for the previous nights event and there wasn't. They could have offered another night, or certificate for their on site restaurant. But nothing.

Downtown, close to everything. This is a cruise hotel - large groups that move in big packs. Bellman moving big trolley with luggage hit me and later an older woman with huge load of luggage. Very noisy, bring earplugs.

Convenient location

Pros: Really friendly staff! The bartender remembers her customer's names and the manager personally greets guests at the door.
Cons: Better signage during construction
Location: Nice views of the city. Good restaurants right across the street
The hotel is renovating its lobby, so navigating through the hallways to the temporary lobby is difficult. But the hotel is pretty nice overall, and it's right downtown across from several good restaurants.

Pros: Closeness to good restaurants.
Cons: notification about the lobby renovation; better signage; ramps to the temporary lobby; snow and ice cleared from doors
Location: Glacier Brewhouse right across the street
Construction--renovation of the lobby--was disruptive. The entrance is inaccessible, up a curb, and on a busy street with no parking. The detours among the hallways are confusing, with poor signage. Only the service elevators were working. I would not have stayed here if I had known. My room was also not clean. There were dirty towels left over from the previous tenant. The sink was cracked. There was no kleenex.
