          Pros: Great location Helpful staff, and valet. Complimentary water at rooms Complimentary coffee and tea at Lobby Complimentary breakfast, but dont expect much. Nothing was hot except coffee and the self-made waffles. Cons: Walls were thin, could hear people talking/walking in the hallway.
