The Bad
There was very little negative feedback online in reviews.

Recent room complaints were: wish there was more vanity counter space, no bedside plug-ins, bathroom a little small, AC is right in front of the bed and pillows were uncomfortable.

There is no elevator and lots of stairs to the guest rooms but the staff offered to carry luggage.

Noise transferred from: the street if windows were open, and guests in overhead or nearby rooms in the morning.

Other comments found were: a bit of a trek to downtown, parking was limited, no gym, and dining room a little tight.
