The Bad
There were not that many negative comments found in the reviews read for this report.

Occasionally guests mentioned that partiers outside of the hotel at night could be loud. 

There were also a very small number of guests, who stated that although they enjoyed the free breakfast, they wished that the hotel would have provided a hot breakfast.

Limited parking was raised on occasion, but it seems that there was also parking on the street and a block away.
