Great Room and Location

There was too much noise from people on the streets during the night, extremely annoying making the overnight stay unpleasant.

1 functioning elevator, construction inside/outside the building, smelled old/musty/moldy throughout hotel & room. Best part of the stay was the location of the hotel - made everything within walking distance.

Loud hotel construction ruined my stay
Under normal circumstances I'm sure this would have been a very lovely stay for me. But with all the hotel construction going on, it was less than satisfactory. The local work I was doing required a late night, and all I wanted was a great night's sleep. Unfortunately they started construction at 8am, and it was relentlessly loud. Ruined what could have been a very nice visit. I would give this place another try next time, but only with reassurances that construction was complete. Otherwise... what's the point?

Very Good8.0
Good stay
The stay was pretty good. The hotel was under construction and it was heard at 7:30 in morning but otherwise was just during the day. We did not spend much time in our room. The rooms were clean and the housekeeper did a great job. Sometimes the water temperature was inconsistent in the shower and I could hear the person showering in the room next to us. The staff was nice. The breakfast was nothing too exciting but it was enough to get our morning started. Only one elevator was working. It wasn't a problem until the morning of check out when there were several people trying to use it. The desk rep didn't mention the parking so I had to ask where to park and found out about the hotel discount. I'm not from an area where you have to pay for parking much so a heads up on this would have been nice. We had plenty of towels and there were always multiple people working at the front desk. I would stay here again.
