    Nice ut not so quiet
    Conveniently located but a bit on the loud side (trains and street noise). I think a few hotels in the immediate vicinity have the same issue. The property itself and the service were first rate.

    Very convenient when visiting campus
    Great place to stay if you’re visiting the University extremely convenient and can walk to campus Could use some updating.... But definitely in the realm of a decent business hotel
    Steven, us1 night family trip
    Fair 4.0
    Yucky water
    Our hotel room floor was wet from the heating unit. Some of our luggage was wet from it. The shower and sink water were brown, even after running the water for over 15 minutes. We were unable to take showers for fear of getting even dirtier from the water. We also could not use the coffee maker in the room due to the same fact. After calling the front desk to report the issues, we were told there was nothing they could do about it except to let the engineering department know.

    Came for the show
    Stayed here for a concert event at Colonial Life Center just up the street. The staff thought of everything including earplugs in each hotel room! The bar/restaurant stayed open late for people returning from the show. Plus free garage parking right on site. (You can’t beat that!)
