The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them about parking costs and noise.

Some guests had complaints about noise disturbances during their stay. They described hearing noise from children playing in the hallways, from other guests using the elevators, from planes flying overhead, and from the fans in their rooms. It should be mentioned, however, that most reviewers found their rooms to be quiet.

The added parking fee of $14 per night + tax was a source of disappointment for some patrons. They felt the parking cost should have been included in the fee.

"The biggest inconvenience I found was the VERY long walk from the registration desk to the elevators for access to the upper floors. When one is travelling with a lot of luggage as I was I was unhappy with the long walk dragging all my cases --it is the longest walk I have ever had to take in a big hotel."
