The front desk person wanted to charge me $25.00 for early check in at 1:00 pm. When I asked who had authority to waive the charge he said he did! My room had a musty smell and stains on the carpet. Very old and needed an update.

The hotel is beautiful, clean and refreshing. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy check in. Parking available but you do have to pay extra. They have a shuttle that can take you where you need to go but its an easy and beatuful walk to the University strip which has a lot to offer.

We were on the 'club member' floor with breakfast privileges & a King size bed, but don't think there was a hot tub. Ask the front desk.
