Barking Dogs Taken care of Really cute Spot
First, this place is really cute! Perfect for a mom and two teenagers, since there's a pool and a bar and lots of fun photo ops. My only real complaint was a big one, though - it is a pet friendly hotel and the barking dogs were intense. I did contact the front desk once and they took care of it in about 30 minutes but the problem happened again the next day.

Not as good as last visit
I was placed in a king room but not a king deluxe which we paid for...front desk didn't seem to understand the difference. Room was not overly fresh. Glass was sorry with fingerprints and what appeared to be pop. Bathroom has hairs in shower and on vanity

Would stay again
Fun place to stay! Very clean and comfortable rooms, helpful staff. You do pay for parking which I expected. Great view of Memorial Stadium. Only complaint was the level of noise from 9th street that could be heard even on the 16th floor.
