Excellent
Wow- we found this by chance, and it turned out to be right near Chris' Jazz Club, a place on our itinerary! I got a text after I got in from the front desk that I could text back with any requests, even for a local restaurant suggestion, so I asked where to get a good local cheesesteak! We were directed to a GREAT one. - The front desk didn't have a big wait going in or out. The bathroom was clean and the bedding and A/C were great. - Samsung TV. Complimentary happy hour cocktail and coffee in the AM. I'd love to return when in the area!

There was a leak in our room late at night and we had to move rooms because of it. However we got moved to a lower rate room than what we had payed for and they gave us parking for free because of the problem. In my opinion I would have liked a little more but it was out of my control from there.

Skip it
Dirty room (hair attached to the lamp) and the sink made an extremely loud noise when you turned the water on. Loud enough to wake neighbors. Small room but I expected that.

Great stay
Wonderful stay. Clean room with everything I needed. Even an umbrella to use if needed during my stay. Exceptional staff. Friendly and accommodating. Check in was smooth and they informed me of all amenities including a complimentary wine hour. Coffee and tea is not in room but in the lobby in the morning.
