Excellent location 3+ live bands playing within 2 blocks on Friday & Saturday night. Room was clean. Furnishing were well worn. No room service available. One lamp bulb burned out. Parking is not included or associated with hotel. They recommend parking in SouthCore Parking Garage. This will cost you at lease $8 per day. We parked at 8 p.m. and left at 3 p.m. next day for a cost of $16. Apparently the day starts at 5 a.m. On street parking can be cheaper if you feed the meter ever 2 hours between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. overnight is free.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry to hear about your stay. I understand that this has never happened in this room before and management assured me that they did apologize. I am sorry that you felt you had to leave without showering as I am sure we could have moved you to another room. I hope that you will try again soon.
