Great location! Nice pub across the street.
Overview a good stay, the bartender at the lobby bar had an attitude that was very noticeable by our party, 4 middle aged couples. The bar, Mahomes, across the street is fantastic!!

Overflowing toilet, loud, smelly, and poor service
Toilet never flushed in the time we stayed at the hotel despite repeated calls to the front desk. An employee was sent up (finally - at MIDNIGHT when it still was overflowing when flushed) who claimed it was fixed. If was not. It would not even flush. On his way to our room, he passed a woman who was having a loud speaker phone conversation with her door propped open because of the smell in her room. The employee did not address it despite the late hour and loud commotion. In an attempt to finish on a high note, we ventured to the breakfast set-up only to learn that many items had been put away already despite the face that it wasn't time to close up. A poor finish to a poor visit.

Hotel employees very helpful & pleasant. We asked if we could change our room to a lower level there was no problem with it. Left my gloves in car the valet went and got them for me no questions asked. Can’t say anything bad. We had a good experience. Would stay there again.

Might try another place... Had Higher hopes
The Pros.. good location easy to walk everywhere. large rooms in an old bank. The lounge was nicely appointed and the drinks were well poured,however there were too many bums outside that were relentless in getting your attention, not sure if this was normal or not ? No one in the lobby or valet area had a comment. Cons.. TP was sandpaper, as well as the kleenex, most rooms I think have terrible views due to the location 2 sides face old buildings and or roofs of them. Ours 613 was terrible looking at a roof and all the buildings alley ways and hvac equipment, room decor was very office like and boring. but we were not in the room very much for the weekend.. Breakfast buffet was just Ok. nothing was hot either morning and the Canadian bacon was curled up and dry,the bagels etc on Sunday were stale, coffee was not kept up, and the kitchen attitude was just that attitude. There are no amenities that do not cost you extra, no 24 hour coffee or water, they shut down the breakfast area so quickly and dumped all the coffee and food even while you may not have been done. 27 dollars a day to park,you cannot control the thermostat in your room because there is not one,room was hot so they brought us a fan. needed an extra lotion and they were out. Coffee in the room was awful and tasted old ( pouch packets), Ice maker was not working so you had to find ice, that was empty on 3 floors. I probably will not return and try one of the many others near by.
