Griffin, us3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
I never got the room upgrade that promised at check out and I ended up getting over charged for the parking as valet parking when I did self parking. They mentioned they would email the receipt and I never ended up getting it. I ended up calling and they said they were gonna email me a receipt and issue a refund but have yet to receive a receipt. The room was okay but walls are very thin there. Loud at times.

Good 6.0
A bit surprised
I've stayed here many times before and normally it is great. This time, though, there was trash in my room and a "funky" smell. I didn't complain and call the front desk, since it was only an overnight stay, but I didn't sleep well as a result. In the morning, the smell was better and almost gone, but it was disturbing through the night. I like this hotel and would return based upon my historical experiences, but this was not one of the better stays.

Exceptional 10.0
Great location and very friendly helpful staff
Just a one-night stay this time, but I have stayed here before. It's a perfect location for going to shows at the nearby venues (Palladium, Henry Fonda theater, John Anson Ford Theatre, etc) . The restaurant is great, the street is quieter than most in this neighborhood (but still very close to plenty of bars and clubs). The only negative was my room was across from a housekeeping closet and I was woken up at 6 am by loud housekeeper conversations in the hallway and that continued off and on til 9 am when I had planned to wake up. I understand they have to communicate to do their jobs but maybe just lower the volume to indoor voices when it is early morning. Also need some WD-40 on those housekeeping cart wheels because they squeak real loud.

Poor 2.0
Terrible terrible terrible. Thin walls and drunks!
This was terrible. There was a couple screaming next door and drunk. After the front desk blamed me for being the couple. Then they apologized and yelled at the couple. The drunk couple continued to ramble then when I left the hotel an hour after checking in. They still blamed me for the couples nonsense and refused to give me my money back. What a waste. This place is terrible and the walls are made out of paper.
