"Disappointing"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The front desk wasn't friendly. The room had a funny smell when we first go there. Had to ask for extra towels. Only two were provided, but we were in a suite that could sleep 6. The sleeper couch was very uncomfortable. The mattress was old and worn down. There was a smell of pot in the hallway more than once during our stay. For a $200 a night hotel more was expected. The lobby and restrooms were clean and kept up.

This year I used your site to try to find a different and more reasonably priced location. Not only did I find a fantastic hotel in a great new location, I save $100 per night over last year's room fee." J.F. - San Francisco, CA
