Parking could be an issue at $45 per night, but we found street parking for free.

Perfect location, clean, restaurant and Starbucks on site. The only drawback is the $53 to park overnight. Quickly turns a $130 a night hotel room into a $180 a night room. Otherwise, highly recommend this place.

Once we got settled in everything was great. However, when we arrived on Sat night around 9:00 we were assigned a HORRIBLE room and when I asked to be changed we had to wait until the next day. We were told the hotel was fully booked and because we booked through a third party (travelocity) we got low level room assignment. After being told we could be changed in the morning, we were put off twice until after 2:00. Basically lost a portion of our vacation. Housekeeping was pleasant upon any interaction and restaurant staff were all wonderful. Location is very desirable.

We had some problems with our room. The sink in the bathroom didn’t drain properly and the air unit was so loud it could wake the dead.
