3/10
Poor
Pros: The view. Second, the bed was good. Third, the bathroom was clean.
Cons: No thermostat in room. Had to leave windows open in sub zero weather, it was so hot. Also, smoky with an ashtray in a supposed non smoking room. Very loud with sirens and police outside, bullhorns heard from 12th floor.

Exceptional
Pros: Very friendly staff, nice lobby area, loved the beds-slept the best I have at a hotel in years. Old hotel meant well insulated walls-nice quiet room. Clean rooms, looks like the rooms have been remodeled recently with tile, carpet,..
Cons: Furniture in the rooms was very cheap & not well designed. The rooms did not match the beautiful lobby area in style or class. Needed my Starbucks coffee-wish they served it in the lobby or cafe like Marriott does.

Good
Pros: Convenient Location for Food, sites, metro, business district.
Cons: Beds are so firm that it felt like sleeping on the floor. Woke up and had back spasms. Finally folded up the comforter into four layers and slept on that the night night. Tolerable at best. Please consider adding at least a foam pad for guests.
