Outdated property due an upgrade.

Common concerns include water damage, damaged locks, damp smells, and tired décor. There are, as of now, unsubstantiated reports that renovation work is underway.

Restaurant dining draws a few groans.

Guests choosing to dine at the hotel's on-site restaurant, Plaza Grill, are not always bowled over by the service they receive. Some guests report that the restaurant is understaffed and the service slow.

Traffic noise proves disruptive to some.
