A great place to stay.

Poor 2.0
So bad
It was so noisy outside and no tab. The reservation system was so complicated and booked wrong options such as share the room with guys. I had to pay more for upgrades. additionally I had to pay $56 for parking! The hotel should indicate that information at the reservation site!

Just ok
The quad room and bathroom was very tight as expected, it was comfortable though if you are only staying for a short period of time and don’t have high expectations. Place smells musty. The front desk was not accommodating when our keys stopped working. They would not let us get new keys without the persons ID who booked even though we had the reservation details and room number. The best part was the location.

Great bar! Good hotel - Needs a woman's touch
This is a really good place to stay. The bar in the lobby is excellent - and a place that locals come to meet because the cocktails are amazing. The hotel itself is simple, clean, and comfortable, but clearly built entirely from a man's perspective. The lighting in the bathroom could use some work. There is no place to set a makeup bag or flatiron and see in the mirror while you're using them, so it's not great for getting ready if you're a woman.
Denise, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
The hotel is very old and dark the hallways have a stench. The room was dusty but it was a decent size room for the price. The front counter staff keeps your bags while you wait on your room or explore the city BUT they have a habit of forgetting which bag is yours when you go to retrieve your bags. we had to ask the hotel staff 3 times to send someone to help us cut on the heat the room was freezing but besides those things they stay was okay. If your looking for just a cheap centrally located place to lay your head this is the place for you.

Was looking for something different
I absolutely love this place. It was quirky and fun. My boys were very happy with the room(we had the 4 bunks in a private room). We were on the 11th floor so the view was great. The only thing i hadn't realized when i booked was that parking costed an additional $39. Overall though, i would definitely like to go back someday.
