    Poor maintenance -- both reading lights out of order. Breakfasts adequate but no better, and the same every day. Noisy air conditioning. Over-priced for lack-luster facilities. I would not recommend or visit again.

    Close to downtown and a short drive to fast food and restaurants. Easy to get to Microsoft Conference Center without taking the freeway (about 5-10 minutes). Its next to an apartment complex but park on the opposite side where its well lit and closed off.
