You need your room key to use the elevator to the guest rooms, which...

The room was nice and clean, the beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was very small though and paint was bubbled up from moisture. When they cleaned it the first day they didn't replace any of the soaps or lotion. Overall it was an average experience, not great but not bad.

The lobby and overall look of the hotel was cool but the room fit and finish was cheap. Bed frames that would squek and role away from the wall when you tried to sit up in it while watching tv. Speaking of the TV the sensor for the direct tv was 'taped' to the front of the TV in some...

The lady at check in stumbled for approximately 20 minutes to complete check in and only coded my cards for a 1 night stay, not 2. We were locked out on the second day and had to return down stairs to get reprogrammed. The cards also deactivated about 15 minutes before check out resulting in us getting locked out again...

I love the new airline crew check in desk. It's nice to get in and get right to the room without having to wait. The beds are very comfortable and it's easy to get a good rest here. It's apparent that they are really making an effort to improve the hotel.
