2/10 Poor

Nasty.
The hotel had bed bugs. I was moved rooms, but still unable to sleep due to how late it was and the fear of being bit. The toilet & sink also didn’t work. I captured it on video as well.

8/10 Very good

Great, but not perfect.
Nice hotel but a bit on the outskirt of the city center ... Can be a bit sketchy at night since there's a homeless shelter right around the corner.

Nice place
Was a very nice Hotel and the Service was great. Very good breakfast. Area was So-So, but anywhere in downtown is a bit sketchy. But all and all it was really good and we would stay there again for sure.

8/10 Very good

Very serviceable for business trips - a good value
Very good experience. Staff friendly & helpfull. Very clean. Parking garage entrance is a bit different from most other places. It definitely works but does take a little explanation. Goodwill services is a block away and I did encounter a few homeless people trying to engage me in conversation as I walked to the Capitol for my appointment, but no real issues and not anything the hotel can control.
