Reviewed 21 April 2016 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel for a conference. Valet parking was the only option at this hotel rather than a self park option. The fridge in the room was cool but definitely not cold to keep food items in. The pool was nice, well maintained, and warm. There were some private events that closed the pool that was inconvenient. Breakfast...

We spent two nights here recently while attending an event at the Convention Center. It was great to walk across the catwalk right into the CC. Service here was very good. Valet only for parking but they were reasonably fast retrieving my vehicle twice for me while we were there. No additional charges for going and coming during the day....

I think Good is better than average and that's what I would have rated the hotel, good not average. Was down for the Frozen Four and due to location/proximity to Amelie Arena the room prices were jacked way up. Food and drink were solid. Barkeeps were engaging. Rooms were clean but not modern. AC worked as advertised. Its nice to...

Stayed here for two nights. Great views from hotel especially on elevators. Rooms ok, typical embassy. Nice to have four omelettes being cooked at once for breakfast. Staff friendly enough. Would stay again. Pretty good place for business meetings.

Family get away to this hotel. Spacious lobby area, and staff helpful and efficient. Parking is limited. Evening reception was good as well as premium breakfast. Hotel is located near good restaurants and shopping. Room was nice but, smaller than expected.

Roomed smelled of old smoke and bathroom dirty. Staff seemed put out when asked for resolution. Internet was spotty at best and difficult to access regularly. Comp breakfast was OK nothing to rave about. Onsite café was a bit overpriced and took way too long to wait for the food. Most front line staff polite.
