Well worth the money! Parking is expensive but it’s impssibke to drive around the city anyway. We took a Lyft. It was cheaper and faster than driving our own car around town. The breakfast every morning was the best I’ve ever had at a hotel!! The pool isn’t anything to be geeked about and was packed full of kids when we were there. The staff was very friendly. Very happy with our stay!!

We wouldn't stay there again, but it's nice..
The hotel is very clean, updated, and comfortable. We could not find the "hidden" driveway that spans thru the building from one block to another, which allows you to either chose valet, or get your luggage out at a convenient location. We drove around the block and finally conceded that the parking garage was our only option. It is an incredibly tight squeeze to enter, and then it's very vague as to what is expected of you. We aimlessly drove around and found a spot. We walked around and found a wall that was painted with "hotel elevator". We rode an elevator up 2?? floors and reached another lobby, of which we wandered around until we found another elevator, which we took up 3?? more floors to the floor named "SL", which apparently means Sky Lounge. I checked in at the front desk, was informed that parking is $48/day and valet is $65/day, but if we wanted to chose valet, we would have to incur the minimum lot charge since we already entered the garage. We then went back down both elevators, probably 100 yards to our parking spot. Then loaded everyone up with all luggage necessary and made the trip again. This time there was a large line to check in, with only 2 people working the desk, luckily we didn't have to endure that line. After settling in our room, we left to find a large line waiting for the elevators. We waited for 10 minutes to get on an elevator to get us to the street level. The room was nice and the service was great, but it was not relaxing.

The location is perfect and the accommodations are top-notch. There is plenty of room, you never feel like you are "crowded" even though the evening reception and breakfast are complimentary. The only thing I would complain about is the pool. It was always filled with kids and it smelled like urine.
