I've stayed here many times in the last several years with the most recent ending yesterday. I stayed in room 910. I was there two nights in a King Room upper floor on the side of the hotel away from the railroad tracks. I was jarred awake just after midnight and again after 2am by the sound of the train going by. I'm not a light sleeper and I don't complain about noise BUT its a real shocker to have that noise, its penetrating.
The room was old and needs a major paint job and new carpet. The furniture was old looking and badly scuffed. It looks like any other hotel way past its prime. I do travel a bit, so perhaps I'm more jaded than the typical guest.
I don't think its worth double the cost of the Best Western Townhouse Lodge even with a AAA discount. The only upside is that its in a safer neighborhood and I didn't worry about my car that was parked in the city owned parking structure across the street ($9/day). And, I got my HHonor points that I wouldn't have gotten had I stayed at the Best Western...
The staff were nice and the lobby attractive. There are many food choices nearby the best of which is "Deva" is an easy 10 min walk.
