4/10 Fair

Disappointing! Reserved and paid for 1 bedroom suite as i was traveling with my husband and teenage daughter for 2 nights, 10 days prior. We drove over 900 miles from texas arrived 20 min early. When i asked if i could check in 20 min early she looked me up and apologized but had to change my room to a double queen room. No email, no phone call, already took my $ for the suite and i really didnt want to wait for the money to be refunded and still have to be out of pocket for another room that night. I settled for the dbl queen room and requested a refund of the difference... room was decent, fridge door is on backwards, spill under fridge door, toilet wasnt bolted down correctly so it wiggled when u sat on it, found a dirty sock behind the ironing board. And there was mold in the ac! I have learned my lesson with this chain. Dont be fooled by pictures, it is nice but i feel its comparable to a newly remolded cheaper chain. Im waiting to see what the manager can do about the price differnce but just to give a paid room to guest that wanted to extend their stay is a bit longer is completely unacceptable in my opinion.
Mold in ac

8/10 Very Good

Nice hotel that's right near downtown.
The hotel itself is new and well laid out. The service at the front desk was great. My two observations were: 1) another hotel is being built directly across from the hotel and noise starts promptly at 7:00 am during the week. 2) The carpeted floors and stairwells were never vacuumed during our stay. The debris was building up during the 4 days we were there. Also, our room was depleted of toilet paper, kleenex, shampoo, conditioner and bathwash from the moment we landed. Only toilet paper left was on the roll. Dirty dishes were still in the dishwasher and someone elses garbage under the sink. It's a nice hotel but housekeeping needs some serious attention.
