Pleasant
Pros: Location is good, comfort was average but clean
Cons: The staff did not explain many things such as you need your hotel key to use the elevators. There are several levels of parking in the garage below and there was extra parking next door. Paying for parking, why? No mention of construction happening.

Pros: When I went down to the front desk and asked for a change in room the girl was most helpful. The coffee in lobby was very good.
Cons: It seems I always get a room next to an ice machine or an elevator.I'm a lite sleeper and that doesn't work. The coffee machine didn't work in the room. Had to go around the block a couple of times because the parking garage was full.

Pros: The location.
Cons: They gave us a room that was designed for wheelchair use which I am not. There was only 1 night table for two people and no room to walk on one side of the bed. The hanging clothes were on the floor because the closet rods were at waist height.
