The room was clean and the employees are responsive and friendly. The hot breakfast in the morning was OK; eggs bagels waffles sausages... prefer to have more seating. They have their own parking garage that I paid 16 for my entire 3 night stay.

We rented a quiet and spacious one bedroom room for two nights over Veterans Day weekend. It was HUGE. A full kitchen, a small dinette, a pull out sleeper sofa, a separate closed off bedroom and a bathroom. Such a relaxing a quiet choice for us with plenty of places to eat within less than a quarter mile walk from... More

The rooms are huge. There is a small kitchen, basic but everything you need, a sitting room area, a big comfy bed and a double shower cubicle in the bathroom. This seems more like somewhere people stay who work in the city during the week then go home at weekends. Staff v friendly, from front desk to cleaners. Breakfast was... More

This past weekend our hockey team stayed here. Our parents had a nice time and the hotel was very thoughtful and accommodating with our players to make sure they have breakfast before our early morning game. Our team will definitely reserved this hotel again.

Room is average with below average internet speed & connection, even for gold/platinum members. I tried to use the "Fill My Fridge" service. It didn't work out the way I expected with the one item I requested coming 2.5 days after the request; it was in my room after I had already bought the item myself. I inquired about my... More

I've stayed here on numerous work trips from days to several weeks in length. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. Location is solid with several great food options in walking distance. The metro is also less than 5 minutes away on foot. There is coffee all day and on Mondays/Tuesdays a fairly substantial dinner is offered in... More

I would completely recommend this hotel. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. I know that this hotel is used as an extended stay destination, but my room was pristine. The staff is incredible and friendly. The breakfast was great. The only thing I would recommend is that the management give the poor reception person a chair to sit on. They... More
