Parking cost was not disclosed - $60 per night Daily amenity fee $25 - no in room mini bar (in reception) Very loud early morning, in hallway and rooms near us, sounded like maintenance being done. Dirty wash cloth on floor, upon entry to the room, had to check the room had be turned over and call to have it removed.

There was an open door on the 4th floor that wouldn't close and you could see a bunch of old mini-fridges. The service was excellent. There were some minor issues I had about full disclosure. For example, I purchased my hotel room with breakfast included. I was told to order "whatever off the menu." Then was told later when the bill came that it was a $25 per person limit. It seems sllightly disorganized.

The location was perfect with in walking distance to everything I needed to get to. The thing I found odd was that I could get ice anywhere in the hotel.
