    Very nice staff but avoid staying here (at all costs) if you're traveling for with work. tourist trap for families + thin walls = screaming children on surround sound. No way you're getting any sleep.

    Charges for WiFi. BUT they do offer a 1 hour "complimentary" code that they claim can only be used in the lobby. What they don't tell you...the code works in your room AND it can be used over again.

    Good hotel, but beware of poor Internet connectivity. No free wifi, except for an hour in the lobby if you ask for a voucher. Is this actually still possible in 2012?

    A little run down, but close to City Walk/Universal Studios & the Metro Red Line. Walls are very thin here, so expect to receive a complaint if you are watching TV after midnight. :(
