Great hotel, in the right location, next to the loop. We got a free upgrade to a studio room; the room was quiet, not such a good view, but it was bigger than our selection. The bed was amazing, love it!More

Love everything about our room, even though we were along the street the view and the people watching was great and forgot about the sound. We loved how it was near the shopping mall and great steak houses.More
