I'd give the Motif a 5 in location and a 3 in price, so that averages out to my 4 rating. For the money, there aren't a lot of amenities, though. My son did use the gym and said it was pretty large and had good equipment. But he and my daughter checked out the Frolik bar but didn't stay,...

The best thing about this hotel was its staff. Superb customer service on the part of all of the hotel staff from check-in to check-out. I was also very pleased that I experienced no problems with wireless internet service which is often a problem at many hotels. On the other hand, the AC was insufficient for me personally. I like...

Good location and friendly staff, but a few odd things added up to a sense that the management is a bit amateurish - a staff member entered my room by mistake while I was napping; advertised room service wasn't actually available; the front desk seemed chronically understaffed. Certainly no great hardships, but for the rate I was paying, the service...

Clean, upscale, functional. Large rooms, nice location. I especially was impressed with the concierge service and luggage storage option. we had just come off a cruise ship and didn't fly out for a day so we were able to drop our bags at 9 AM and see the sights. They let us check in at 1 PM as well. Very...

I really enjoyed my 2 night stay here, they got me on the 19th floor over looking 5th Ave, there is so much stuff to do near the hotel that you really don't even need your car or a cab/uber. I can say I will be staying here again.... If and the beds are really comfy!

Great hotel for central downtown and shopping. Would highly recommended it. Wine tasting everyday was appreciated by all the guests. However, not the best for gourmet dining. Good restaurants all around.

Absolutely average hotel with overpriced accommodations. Would not recommend at all. There are much better and cleaner hotels in downtown with better staff. Some of the front desk staff were pretentious and tried to sneak in $19 for a phone call to Canada which was supposed to be free with the already extra charge I paid. They only took it...
