          the room and bathroom were clean enough.

          the hotel is in a quiet area, i didn't feel safe to walk outside at night time, the private shuttle (to the airport) that was booked for me by the hotel, the drivers were dodgy forced me to tip them at least 20% even i already paid 97 USD, i found it annoying and uncomfortable situation.

          Very poor on reservation. Lady in charge didn't even type my name correctly. She didn't help at all. They informed me that i needed to call for reservation for a room in addition to my booking through internet. Room service made me and my girlfriend discomfortable too. They distract us before the checking out time for leaving.

          It is a very clean and comfortable hotel to stay in. Overall it was a good stay...the only draw back is there is a very limited amount of parking offered...if you plan to go out at night...good lick finding parking...

        • Older travelers

          Location, parking lots.

          Needs to improve on having the basic breakfast items such as sausage, bacon, hashbrown, etc... The juice machine was not working the entire time during our stay.

        • Group of friends

          If you have a window towards the 21st street, it can be a bit noisy at night. We were so tired however, that it didn't bother us.
