All of the bad reviews, I've read about this place are total lies. Place is a very well maintained older hotel to have been built way back then with way ahead of its time architecture. Rooms are very clean and maid service is daily and thorough. AC works quiet well and continental breakfast turns out the best I've ever had....

The customer service at this hotel is the worst. When I Called to book a suite, I had spoken to 3 different members and neither wanted to book my reservation, which they never did. They continued to give me the run around saying I had to speak with a Manager just to book a suite. One of them actually felt...

When you first walk in to this place you are greeted by a very nice looking lobby all marble tile, high polish on the wood surfaces, and generally looks like a very nice place. This is a very deceptive preview of the place. Once you get beyond the lobby you begin to see the true face of this hotel. Many...

This was the 1st Choice Privilege hotel that I experienced the worst possible stay. This hotel is unsuitable to be staying in. The hotel staff checked me in by leaning over the keyboard, unfriendly. Only one slow elevator for 4 floors. When you get off the elevator smells like mildew and you almost can fall through the floor. Go into...

Before I begin, I want to state that I booked this direct through the Choice Hotel website, and requested one of their "nicer" rooms....The volume on the TV didn't work, so I called the front desk. They advised they would send maintenance. About an hour later the front desk called back to confirm the specific problem and advised they would...
