Beds were great. A/c great. Food fantastic. Clean. Excellent public hang out space. Staff friendly and helpful. You can go across street for dinner or movie. I really liked this hotel. If you aren't stating waterfront this is a good choice. Oh also it's set up perfectly for business traveler - good desk, outlets, wireless, etc.

Stayed here New Years Eve and dined at Shulas Steak House.It was a busy night but they did their best to accommodate all of our needs. Flower delivery never made it to the room but they comped part of our dinner bill.

We stayed here recently, and really liked it. Bed was very comfortable, rooms were clean and quiet. Shula's Steakhouse and a courtyard lounge right there on property. Many other places to eat within walking distance. Our room looked at the courtyard and was very quiet.

Let's start with the positives: There is free parking in a garage around the back of the hotel and staff are friendly. The rooms are somewhat spacious and sleep quality was good. After check-in it took them an hour to get my luggage to my room (even though I had said that I'd do it myself, but they insisted), and...
