If it were not for the staff I would be writing a totally different review. I'm not sure if the fault is with Expedia clawing this as an Elite benefit hotel but we saw no benefits and our room on the third floor was pretty pokey with low eaves height and dirty carpet (which is apparently due to be cleaned in a week or so). The hot water stopped working in the morning but the staff were excellent in response so I would not mark them down for that.
On balance I would give them another go but would be more specific about the room I would expect for the money paid.
Front desk was very nice and friendly upon check-in.
The room itself was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. We had a room with a nice wire overlooking the city. My only complain is that when I called the front desk on the phone from my room it took 15 minutes to get an answer. I just had a question, should not have taken so long to get my call answered.
"Close to few restaurants within waking distance."
I stayed at this hotel because I needed a more reasonabley priced hotel that is within walking distance to the Renaissance Center. Room was clean and hotel staff were pleasant. Breakfast buffet at $11.95 as of June 17, 2015. Elevator will require hotel room key(card) to go up. Not recommended to late night walks, as area did not look safe at such time, but day time is fine.
hotel facilities seemed a bit dated... most things worked well, but had some issue with elevator key card readers not working. rooms lacked quiet door closers, so room door would slam behind me when my hands were full.
otherwise everything was great.
