    Was a fairly decent hotel. They gave us late check-out because we arrived pretty late in the evening, which was nice. It's a good location as well because we could walk to any place downtown. Finding our way around the building was pretty easy too.

    We do require a credit card upon check for which we authorize a $50 per day deposit. If you do not have any additional charges while at the hotel this authorization is released. It is not a charge.
