Positive Reviews

This Hotel Offers a Good Location

Guests said this property gave them easy access to nightlife and restaurants, especially when they wanted to explore Sixth Street. Furthermore, due to the close proximity to the convention center, many guests had convenient stays here when attending conferences.

The Check-In Process is Efficient

Because this hotel has individual check-in stations rather than just one desk, guests reported that they were able to check in speedily. Some also appreciated that the setup was more private than most. If you're feeling weary from extended traveling and can hardly wait to get to your room, this hotel has worked out an accommodating system.

The Rooms Offer What Guests Want

There were many comments about how the rooms at this hotel are well equipped with the perks guests want most to help them feel at ease away from home. In particular, guests liked the Keurig coffee makers and the refrigerators, both of which come standard in the rooms.

Negative Reviews

Guests Didn't Like the Valet Charge

There were many unhappy guests in relation to the hotel's valet charge. There is no other option for parking besides using the valet, and some guests felt that the charge for parking was much too high.

The Accommodations Are Overpriced

Numerous guests expressed the opinion that the combined cost of a room and the parking charge made this hotel very overpriced. Some guests even said that they would only stay here again if there were no other choice, because they felt there are comparable rooms elsewhere for less.

The Pool Isn't Great

Guests were not thrilled by the size and setup of the pool. They said it's very small, plus in an area that doesn't get a lot of sunlight. However, it does have a waterfall.
