    Not a bad place. Get a higher floor for better view. Chemical cleaner smell strong in room. Thermostat set to a chilly 66 upon arrival.

    When you reserve & confirm that you booked a Suite with a king bed, beware, they'll tell you it's only a "suggestion" & give you a Suite with a double queen bed, if you're lucky :(

    If you value your hard-earned dollars, don't stay at this hotel. They try their darnedest to take your $$ away. Everything is an extra charge, including wi-fi, gym and even parking during check-in.

    Don't go here during Nov-Jan expecting to have a drink at one of the "largest bourbon bars in the country". It's closed down and turned into a damn gingerbread house. They won't tell you this though..
