Really disappointing room amenities. The couch In the room is torn and stained, the mattress is rock hard and the bed frame squeaks terribly. Would NOT stay here again.

Valet parking was a welcome necessity. The negative was the large homeless population in the area.

There was no continental breakfast. Parking at hotel was expensive and felt unsafe with all the homeless people around the hotel!

Hello We are very sorry to hear about the problems you experienced. The city requires regulations on the thermostats to make sure that hotels in the local area are following green initiatives. Please call us if there is noise disturbance or if you feel the room is too warm and we will be more than happy to assist you. We do hope you will give us another chance next time you are in the local area.

The Valet attendants and late-night clerk with the cool hair were the nicest and most professional people I have met since coning out West. Wow! A great team that relly helped me with checking in and managing the gigantic rental vehicle
