If you can stay somewhere else (ANYWHERE ELSE)......do it. Heat a/c in rooms is either on or off, it does not cycle so room is either like an over or a fridge. Beds are uncomfortable in the extreme. Loud noises from other guests in the late hours made sleep almost impossible. Breakfast not included and food way too pricey to...

This Clarion hotel is not bad for the price point. We utilized this hotel for the park/fly option. (StayParkTravel.com) The hotel allowed us to park our BMW right up front near...

Had a great stay here. Everything was very clean; room, bathroom, linens, etc. The staff was super friendly, hassle free check-in/out. It's nice to see a hotel that still pays attention to detail. Location is also a big plus. Close enough the city, without all the crazy traffic. 5 mins from airport, 10 mins from stadiums, and about 15 mins...
