We wouldn’t rate it more than 35 It was okay

On the good side: it was clean and had soaps; bar was opened until midnight and cocktails were good On the bad side: no food or snacks in the hotel at all No breakfast or coffee We were told their kitchen was not opened Sunday/Monday Do they really need their kitchen to stock up shelves with some snacks and make a coffee? They list breakfast on their website and we were charged full price My husband asked if we were going to have some discount since we didn’t have breakfast, he was told no The room was reserved for two, we had only one k cup in the room Although, they did give him a couple more when he went to the lobby to ask for it We will not stay there again This hotel stay is worth $89, not $119 that we were charged But we know it is not typical of Cambria We stayed at another Cambria in Greenville SC and it was much much better Cambria in Columbus OH is the one we didn’t like

I am completely floored at the poor condition of the hotel we’re staying in Cambria Hotel in Columbus/Polaris is a joke We are paying almost $350 for 1 night

I would expect near perfection for that priceWebsite claims to have a restaurant/room service Was told when we checked in that they haven’t had a restaurant in nearly 2 years The hot tub is broken They have construction going on None of the ice machines work on any floor except the first Elevators were dirty Tables pushed up against the wall Almost looked abandonedOur room curtains are ripped Lamp shades are broken Jacuzzi tub bubbles didn’t work Furniture scratched up Looks like it came out of a 50 year old motel 6 Missing knob on dimmer switch Cobwebs on the ceilingFor $350 a night I would expect more Would have also been nice if someone would have contacted us with the problems before booking it

The two rooms I stayed in were nice, but they both need some updating, especially the bathrooms Why all hotels think water isn’t going to leak all over the bathroom floor from the shower I have no clue- but there is no shutting the shower doors in those hotel room Pillows were too small, and mattress was a bit too firm for me

I had to be switched to another room because the battery stopped working on my thermostat and it was hot, but in the other room, the fan sounded like it was a plane engine ready to explodeThe front desk agents were not the friendliest and the overall experience was just not the most pleasant

I wouldn’t consider this a 4-star hotel, more like a 3-star Our room was dated and the AC ran all night trying to cool off our 6th floor room I don’t think the room ever got to the 65 degrees that we set it on

We had breakfast at the restaurant and the food and service were great My only complaint was paying $5 for a small glass of orange juice The food prices seemed fair given the large portions The fitness center was nice and clean with complimentary water The “convenience store” isn’t anything more than non-alcoholic drinks and nuts Overall the room was clean and the beds were comfortable, but nothing about the hotel was above average

Cynthia Brown

We were there for a wedding, so we made the best of things The hotel staff deserves 5 stars, but the room was definitely not a 4-star While the king bed was quite comfortable, the rest of the room was very old and dated

All electric outlets we could reach were too loose to be comfortable to use Our TV stopped working The prompt response of maintenance determined that the electric outlet no longer worked, but he was able to use another outlet There were no outlets at the desk, so I had to brew coffee in the bathroom using an outlet that sparked sharing that outlet with our charging station The ceiling above the shower was coming down There was no light bright enough for the room so reaching into the black drawer interiors or our suitcases to retrieve garments was quite difficult No mention on the website that housekeeping no longer makes beds/empty trash cans during a stay so 4-night stay meant all trash cans were overflowing by the time we left No mention that ‘winter’ months means valet service only available Thursday-Sunday and Starbucks, restaurant, bar have limited hours if open at all

Elizabeth Lape

The ac doesn’t work well at all When we checked into our room we were a bit confused by the box fan In the room – thank goodness we had it because the room is stuffy and has poor circulationI was hoping it was just our room – but the bar at the restaurant had one too – so it must be ac that needs updates

The service however was great! Staff were friendly and helpful, bar staff wonderful and fun – food at restaurant was great!The rooms were not exactly outdated – but the furniture is a bit worn throughout room and whole hotel Just minor things like worm away paint in furniture and cabinets – just a little Tlc would make it greatHousekeeping did service our room though throughout our 2 night stayNot all the outlets worked – needs updates electrical – there were power strips which i just found strange but understoodI would not stay at this hotel again due to the air not working well I would not classify as a 4 star – maybe 3?Not a terrible experience but not what iWas expecting for a 4 star downtown

Super trendy The whole aesthetic of the place is 5/5 Very modern

Bartenders whip up some great drinks! The rooms and a little small and lacking a small refrigerator, but honestly that’s the only complaint I haveand if that’s the only complaint, I consider it a perfect experienceThe nice fire to enjoy drinks around was a massive plus!OH andthey really do take care of the cleanliness of the entire hotel and meet the cleaning standards of what is needed to keep covid at bayWe will most definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family!

Team Minney

My husband and I enjoyed our stay They had everything we needed and coffee and bagels for breakfast There is also an awesome restaurant attached but not affiliated

We stayed on a Thursday night on the 7th floor and could still hear the bar below us going til 2:30 So if you are looking for a quiet hotel maybe not this one I also would not bring my kids to this hotel It’s more of a upscale and modern hostel Neat concept and friendly employees You will pay for parking so be prepared

mark kotch

My wife and I stayed for a short trip It was very trendy We had a amazing view

Loved that they give you beer tokens when you check in at the bar The 6th floor terrace was a relaxing spot to hang out The roof top bar Mandrakes was awesome! The view and atmosphere was great and it was a short elevator ride to our room after The short north area is also awesome we did a food tour All the art and shops were nice as well We will definitely be back much more to talk aboutMy only complaint would be I wish the rooms had a mini fridge, but we had a cooler so no problem

As a frequent traveler and a member, will definitely not stay at this location on my next tripFront Desk staff was very nice and helpful at check-in in but, we get to the room and the bathroom was not well cleanedThere was no tissue papers in the room nor the bathroom

Toilet paper was almost finished and we still have not received any as I write this review even though I have asked for oneI tried calling the Front desk and no one is picking upThere is no sign for do not disturb in our roomWe specifically asked for microwave when booking and was told they would provide it, we got to the room and there was no microwave so I had ask and was told they have it only in the suite so I insisted the check the recorded call before I was provided with oneFor someone who doesn’t know much about staying in a hotel and the standard amenities that comes with it, this hotel will be paradise for them but definitely not for me and my family

Kelbi Harman

Room was dirty, pretty sure bathroom hadn’t been cleaned from previous guest Soap was missing from the box on the counter Needs updating on things that are broken or damaged

Some lights wouldn’t work, or the phone or alarm clock Food/stains on walls,carpet and around lights by bed Hot tub was completely yellow and pool was not clear and had stuff floating in it Front desk staff was nice and helpful Location was good But I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone We used a recommendation from a local store to stay here and I’ve notified them of the conditions of the hotel and that maybe they should pull their recommendation from the website We didn’t even attempt to try breakfast The ratings on this are very misleading It wasn’t a good stay at all

Beth Gelhar

You’re mostly paying for the location of this hotel in my opinion The place is a bit run-down Our room was clean, but had some noticeable issues

They didn’t provide enough towels and getting extras was difficult (we had to resort to grabbing pool towels at one point) Our mini fridge had what I can only describe as a god-awful smell- to the point that it was unusable The mechanism for the window shade was broken, so we mostly just kept the shade down because getting it to move was very difficultThe staff was very friendly and hard-working, so we appreciated that And breakfast was on-par with other Holiday Inn Express locations That said, I probably wouldn’t choose to stay here again simply because it was not a good value for the money

Ladies – read this before booking a stay here! I travel frequently on business; most often alone Last week I stayed at this hotel with 2 colleagues The hotel was in very poor condition but I overlooked the many issues because it appears they have started a renovation somewhere inside {certainly not in the room I was in!} What I can’t overlook is a very serious safety concern with this hotel

One of my colleagues’ key cards stopped working in the middle of our stay He went to the front desk and the associate asked his room number and gave him new keys with no verification whatsoever! She didn’t ask his name, and she didn’t ask for an ID This is very concerning to me as she had no idea if he was an actual guest or a stalker that was about to enter a room and wait on an unassuming guest to arrive later This is inexcusable! Earlier in the week, another colleague was able to charge something to his room with zero ID verificationWhile nowhere near as serious, it does tell me that not verifying guests identity is a consistent issue here Travelers, and especially women, book reliable hotel chains when they are traveling alone and their safety should be the highest priority of hotel chains I have tried twice to reach the GM of the hotel, John Hickey, but he has yet to call me back even though I left detailed messages explaining I had a serious safety concern I’ll never stay at this hotel again…if you do, I suggest checking the closet before locking your door for the evening

David Abram

This hotel in general feels like a Days Inn motel, offering nothing at all special except a place to store your luggage while you lie on their misshapen, springy mattressesThe rooms have a pullout sofa bed thing that was actually only slightly less comfortable than the bed itself, which has probably been around since the 90s 0 stars for comfort

The shower/bath faucet was actually the wrong valve to match which was was hot and which way was cold You had to turn it toward cold to get hot, and hot to get cold Strangest thing everThe hallways repeat the Days Inn feel, but the lobby tries to make you feel like you’re joining a Marriott property 100% of their budget goes into pretending to be a Marriott, albeit the lowest version of one as a CourtyardThe price is okay, but you get what you pay for

Chance Cobbett

Seems great from the start but are fridge was so small I couldn’t put anything else in except 1 gallon of milk for my daughter, I honestly think the only microwave is in the lobby, pretty much if your traveling for work and a family member or 2 stays at the hotel they don’t have much resources to make your own food! I will also say my 1 year old daughter that sleeps through the night cried some during the day and are neighbors thought it’d be great the mock her and then she was even more upset, I went to the front desk and was told their wasn’t really anything they would do, long story short we checked out the next day

The rooms were clean and well lit Even the remotes were sanitized and put in plastic bags for reassurance The only complaint was the sofa with bed had issues with the seat cushions not fitting properly and making it hard to get comfortable and getting up with the hard edges of the frame exposed

Minor but enough to write about Otherwise a good location to everything we wanted to go to

Jess Brant

I wish I could leave a negative star but not possible I traveled here for a conference and the conference had a special rate so logically I took advantage of the rate I wish I would have checked the reviews before booking

I start my interaction with the check in team being notified that there is no housekeeping service due to Covid Needless to say I was taken back by hearing that news, nowhere on their website does it mention no clean sheets, note I’m there for almost a week It is interesting they highlight no room service on the website why not this? Probably because nobody will want to stay at the hotel if they didn’t get a clean room every day Talk about sneaky! Since it was a conference week there was no way to switch hotels On top of that they wouldn’t let me cancel my reservation, I had to stay there for at least the one night The only positive about the hotel is the geographic relation to the convention centerWhat is even more interesting from reading the reviews the only thing the manager says “I hope you give us another chance”Stay away from this hotel!

James Landon

We were very shocked at the lack of service and hospitality that was displayed this eveningMy wife and I came here to relax and enjoy what we thought would be a good hotel stayWe arrived at 7pm

Checked in Tried to get dinner at the restaurant inside Sonesta HotelWe stood around confused with no direction from the hostess, eventually we were seated and 30 mins had gone by and no one came overAt this point it’s late and we are still looking for dinnerWith paying $200 a night, we should not have to walk multiple blocks to attempt to find a restaurantWe came back and talked with Norma at the desk Her lack of compassion was visibly noticeable She gave off the impression that we , the customer, were an inconvenience We explained the unfortunate events that took place at the restaurant and she said , her words exactly “we cannot refund you You checked in at 7” (At this point it is 9pm) and you should have stood up and said “hey, can we get service!”As someone who works with customers every day, that is no where near the experience I would want to offer my customers”As a result of such a disappointing evening, I am requesting a refundWe were there for 2 hours and met with this most unprofessional customer service experience

Staff was EXTREMELY kind and helpful! From the moment we arrived, the valet was there to assist us, take our bags, help with our mountain bikes, give directions, etc The front desk also went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed Rooms were a bit pricey, but the hotel is in a great location and if the staff is going to be that great, I don’t mind paying extra

We will be back!

Miranda Hult

Our stay was okay My husband and I thought it was outrageous that the hotel charged $3200 per day for valet parking

The valet service is pretty good It seems to be an outside company Other parking options are limited Due to the location of the hotel the unloading/ loading zone is very small You might have to circle around the block until someone leaves, which can be frustrating No one came to our room for housekeeping service I told the housekeeper that we were leaving in an hour and she never came back The iron was broken- had to go to the front desk and ask for a new one If you go down for breakfast you have to pay- no complimentary continental breakfast The shower was terrible, the water trickled out of the shower head The toilet didn’t flush well either Needless to say, I probably won’t go back Thank god, I found wine at DG two blocks up

Bob St. Pierre

Just got back from this place and what a surprise! I’ve stayed at Westin’s before and loved them but not this time I get that it’s being remodeled or renovated but it’s pretty bad They have a sign that apologizes for the inconvenience but they still charge you full price

They don’t have a restaurant or bar open but they do have a small room with tables and they have a tarp draped over part of the room to cover up a bunch of junk and that serves as the place to mingle, I guess The lobby and front desk area is extremely cold, so cold you must wear a jacket or coatWe had two rooms there but I’ll never go back There’s no one around so you have to ring a bell and hope someone hears it!They should either close until the renovation is complete or charge a lot less than full priceThey were not transparent to the extent of the renovations on the website and that just doesn’t sit well with me Too many nice hotels around there so we won’t ever go back to this one

I am a little late writing this review but I wanted to share how enjoyable our stay was May 31-June 6 The service and hospitality were out of this world Everyone including reception and housekeeping were so friendly and quick to help with our requests

We very much enjoyed our suite The location of this hotel is great There are restaurants with lovely patios, a great coffee shop, and a fun place called Pins all within walking distance We grabbed breakfast to go at a diner across the street Thank you to everyone at the hotel for helping make our visit with family so fantasticCheryl & Lee

Tonya Strazdins

Hotel LeVeque is a gorgeous, refined hotel in downtown Columbus I stayed here for a night in February as a birthday surprise for a friend and the staff were welcoming and helpful in assisting us with our plansOur room was spacious and beautiful and continued the constellation theme throughout

There is a very homey feel in the room as you don’t really hear any of the goings on throughout the rest of the hotelWe were able to grab drinks at the keep and the in house restaurant only enhanced our experienceLike I mentioned, it was a Saturday night in February and I expected there to be valet but there were only piles of snow in any convenient drop-off location in front of the doors There’s a parking garage for the hotel but I wouldn’t classify it as super convenient This would be my only gripeOtherwise it was a great experience!

Taylor Ray

There will always be negative reviews no matter where you are but I wanted to make sure that I left a genuine review on this hotel

We only stayed for one night, to split up our long 14 hour drive home but I would have stayed much longer if I could’ve Everything was absolutely perfect and shining clean The staff was incredibly nice and helpful Amenities were perfect The pillows were phenomenally comfortable! And the shower was to die for! Everything was just like the pictures! I am not getting anything from the hotel by doing this review, I just want to let everyone know how incredible it was! I hope your stay was as great as ours Thank you Hotel LeVeque and your staff!

This hotel was gorgeous We were a little upset because we were not aware they were having a car show convention and it was very packed during our stay We were attempting to relax and it did make it harder

But overall the hotel is very pretty and the location isn’t bad for where it is in Dublin I think it was fairly priced and the bar staff is immaculate That is the one thing I could not be more happy with They were lovely The front desk staff weren’t very helpful After checking us in we had to look around for a while to find the elevators because we were not explained where to go for our rooms, and the elevators are so slow There are definitely some downsides to this hotel but it is pretty, the rooms are modern and cozy, the showers get so hot This hotel could easily be a 5 star hotel if they did some functionality updates because the lobby is breathtaking and the rooms are so upscale

Richard Fallon

Decent, but for the price it could be better The room I stayed in had a slider door for the bathroom which didn’t block any sounds and was hard to operate The bathroom also didn’t have a fan, and not microwave in the room

Beds were good and the tv was nice The restaurant on site said online it was open to midnight but was closed before 11 which was a let down Small but good pool and decent work out room Easy to get to off the highway

Larry Balla

Really nice hotel, but really expensive food! Breakfast buffet was $2395 A bottle of water and a Snickers bar was $7

Mixed review here The staff has been fantastic; helpful, competent and attentive The public spaces are welcoming and attractive but the furniture isn’t the most comfortable The room is a nice space and the bathroom is super nice The room, however, is entirely covered in laminate flooring Not a fan Regardless of the heat setting the floor stayed cold, it’s slippery when wet and feels pretty industrial While this otherwise is a really nice property, I don’t think I’d stay here again specifically for the flooring

Kimberly Marsh

Good staff Good common spaces Small Indoor pool for exercise

Nice fitness room with rower etc and accommodations are good Little quirky things Nautical theme is kind of weird since its landlocked area with retention pond as only water feature But weirdest thing was the door sensor to roomStopped working Got new room but staff had to break into other room to get our things We waited at least an hour so good thing we did that funeral like we had yesterday, or wedding etc Got a call late at night asking about our $120 bar bill for Raymond No Raymond here and certainly 2 drinks didn’t cost $120 Otherwise the rate is good Lots of outdoor places to sit near the pond and some games too

Rob Keisling

Fantastic location, each & every stay Very clean & well-maintained property in a very nice location Staff are very professional & courteous

Strong attention to detail in a modern facility make for an enjoyable stay Daily housekeeping is a welcome return from the covid hiatus Restaurant is well above-average for hotel in both food and service Sam was great at breakfast Bartenders are very friendly and engaging You will be glad you stay here

Wow, what a fantastic hotel It is an impeccably maintained property, in a great location, with awesome views from the guest rooms The lobby and the rooms are wonderfully appointed with high end stylish furniture, and it just has a super chic feel to it

The entire staff was great In particular I want to thank the manager, Christopher, who went out of his way to help and so friendly They were warm and welcoming and extremely accommodating It was awesome Such a great hotel and I can’t recommend it enough I spend a decent amount of time on the road each year, but this place really stands out Looking forward to the next time I’m in Columbus

My experience at The Joseph was so, so It sits in a prime location close to all of the Short North Columbus Hot Spots and has a door connecting it to The Guild House, a fine dining Cameron Mitchell restaurantThey have valet, who were eager to assist us upon pulling up to the building

The front desk staff were helpful and friendlyThe room was pretty basic, nothing really memorable about it other than the view of 670 (if you’re into watching cars pass by on the freeway) We did hear the people next to us fairly often Our neighbors weren’t purposefully loud, it’s just the walls were so thin, you couldn’t help but hear the people next to you With a nightly fee of close to 400 dollars, you would think they could afford better insulationIn my opinion the price isn’t worth the only amenity of being close to the the short north Book a cheaper hotel elsewhere and uber

Fantastic hotel! The moment you pull up a fantastic,peppy fabulous, bell man greets you and caters to your every needYou walk in the hotel, the look is very swanky yet sophisticatedThe rooms are clean, well lite, and very edgy

The bar in the lobby and the restaurant are fire!Overall the hotel is well worth every pennyWell done!

It’s way over price I had a one king size bed room The Roman was fine but there’s no microwave, a really small fridge with no freezer space, and no laundry facilities on site

Plus, they take money out of your account on weird days not the day you check in, so my bank account got all messed The staff is fine just know you’re paying a lot of not that much

Vonessa Henry

Room was booked using points, get here and now can’t use the points Room had something brown smeared on the couch, big pieces of crumbs on the floor, fridge did not work From the outside the hotel is really nice but inside is like a motel but with a hotel price

We normally stay at Hyatt House, will continue to stay there That is a 5 star hotel


Found spiders in our 1st room In the bed with us and and everything Cob webs everywhere… seems like maintanece said a spider had babies in there right before we arrived 🤷🏾‍♂️ Anyway, housekeeping manager came after maintenance and checked it all out

I took d pics and video All of us were disgusted, but wound up moving us to a room they had me to inspect with them That room was fine, I finally talked to the manager and she offered points to us and I asked for 2 cookies No free night… but I think this was just a one off situation That’s why I gave them 3 stars I still think more could have been done seeing that we were out in a VERY SMALL room when we 1st arrived So this was actually our 3 RD ROOM in this hotel I usually have amazing experiences at any Hyatt Place I stay in and this was the toughest stay I’ve had PS They did give us a free late check out

Great room, fantastic staff and superb location We experienced a power outage in the neighborhood and the staff was apologetic even though it wasn’t their fault The valet service was amazing

Everyone was helpful and friendly This was my first time in Columbus I’ll definitely come again and stay here Well worth it Unique and fun decor too!

Caleb Huck

We cannot say enough great things about this hotel! Not only are they accepting of all races, genders, religions or anything, but they are also super dog friendly! The service has been fantastic from everyone on the staff and the location on High is perfect! The rooms are very standard but have fun decor and quality finishes and fixtures We try to look for a Graduate hotel whenever we travel, especially if it is with our 🐶 Happily recommend all the time!

Not too bad The room was spacious and the bed was reasonably comfortable The cleanliness can certainly be improved

We found trash on one of the window sills and there was an old filter still in the coffee maker The carpet was dirty and there weren’t any regular coffee packets The front desk remedied the coffee however and the way they have breakfast set up is convenient Not bad for a hampton inn in a downtown city though There’s a Ruth’s Chris just around the corner in the same building too

Mindy Meyer

Impressive! It started with a very friendly and efficient valet attendant, and an efficient and friendly front desk clerk, and continued with every staff person we encountered The public spaces and rooms were very clean Breakfast offered a wide variety of foods and there was always hot coffee and water available in the lobby

The proximity to the convention center and restaurants can’t be beat We opted to stay at Hampton Inn instead of the hotel connected to the convention center because it is a more convenient location and shorter walk to everything!

John N.

The rooms have everything you need The breakfast is really good Free hot breakfast with a lot of great options

Took a star off rooms because I could never get the wifi to work but that’s not the fault of the workers The location absolutely cannot be beat if you’re going to the convention center Lots of food options around Comfortable beds, great pillows Will probably stay here again

They only have valet parking $$ In witch they did a fabulous job having our car ready to go out for dinner and in the am when we werrr ready to go So I guess I can’t complain about the valet

The breakfast servers were on it but the food served was not $$ buffet style and it was not hot The room bedding and air quality was great So I slept good A nice full mirror in the sleeping area but no lighting near it

Jessica Kenimer

I had a meeting at the Renaissance Downtown Hotel this morning to tour the facility for the Brady Ware Women’s Leadership Conference we’re hosting there in June The hotel is beautiful and Amanda has been great to work withI was running late for the meeting, it was pouring outside and I didn’t see the “valet parking” sign before entering what I thought was a parking garage

I pulled in and Nick greeted me I asked him for parking suggestions and told him I’d only be at the hotel for about 45 minutes and was running late He was so kind and offered to keep my car nearby for me and validated my parking It was such a kind gesture and took a lot of stress off of me so I could get to my meeting Thanks so much Nick!

So I’m here on business and the company has made reservations The company had not paid for the rooms because of some confusion to our reservations We called our travel office and they guaranteed payment

However, the attendant was very reluctant to give us rooms unless we place it on our personal card and then have the company reimburse us Mind you this is a fortune 500 company that keeps its commitments We only had a three hours before we had to travel onward Anyway 2 hours later they received the authorization and then the attendant offered the rooms My colleague accepted but I declined because our limo was due in 30min I will be writing this event to our company and hopefully we drop this hotel for I got no rest but aggravation So much for customer satisfaction or working to resolve issues Horrible job I would have expected better

I never write reviews but our experience was so good so I had to share! My husband and our dog Daisy stayed at the Dog House hotel for a weekend and we had a great time From the moment we checked in to out the staff were extremely friendly The room design was awesome

We enjoyed our cookie and stout happy hour and breakfast provided by the hotel We ate at the restaurant two times and really enjoyed it, especially since they have many vegetarian options It was so nice that our dog could enjoy time with us on the patio too Wonderful place!

Kara S

My husband and I stayed here for a night to celebrate his birthday It was so much fun! We are already planning our visit back!We ate at the restaurant and food was great! The wings were fantastic! Loved the beer too!The hotel was comfy and loved the perks of staying there You receive a cookie and stout in the evening, a complimentary beer or seltzer at check in, and a wonderful full breakfast including mimosas!We did do the beer museum tour and were surprised it was so small

If you aren’t a true beer aficionado you won’t think it’s worth your time You have to do a lot of reading and it’s all in a small space We enjoyed it though!Highly recommend and can’t wait to return!

Thomas J. Morrisey

Really comfortable and clean rooms with very reasonable priced minibars stuffed with awesome beers Lots of small but extremely thoughtful elements like an extra large umbrella in the closet you can borrow Extremely friendly, helpful and flexible staff

Shout out to Jacob the lobby bar evening bartender! Had a wonderful visit, this place would be at the very top of my list for a return visit to Columbus

I enjoyed my stay overall The room was pretty nice, a little bit dark though I was disappointed that there weren’t bathtubs but no big deal

The TVs apparently have a way for you to connect your device and stream to it but I could not figure that out at all There weren’t any hotel guides or area guides in the room, not a big deal at all but something that I always enjoy A map of the hotel would have been handy since it took me a while to find the ice machine and other spaces I was there for a conference and multiple people complained that they had no idea where to find the ice machine Again, not a huge problem at all but it would be an easy little change to make life easier Overall, I enjoyed my stay It is in a great location, nearby some of the best restaurants in the city, and I would stay here again

Brian Abram

I usually don’t leave reviews, but I was disgusted with the level of customer service from the front desk staff and the cleanliness of the room There was a clear difference in the way in which I was communicated with by the front desk and I made sure to mention that as I checked in and out Maybe a diversity training would be beneficial for staff

In terms of room cleanliness, it looked as if the room hadn’t been cleaned at all Very dusty and hair everywhere from last guest Luckily, I brought my own cleaning products from home in case this happened The point is, I came to this hotel for a meaningful conference, but the hotel didn’t provide a pleasant experience for me Please address!

Ruta P.

Nice hotel with beautiful suites We had VIP Suite with separate dining area, wet bar and city views Very clean and well organized

Front desk staff very professional and very friendly We came for the sporting event and loved the idea that hotel is actually connected with the venue so didn’t have to leave building to enter the convention center Hotel itself had a restaurant and a bar with not that many options for dining, that’s probably only negative thing I would see but since it is located in the downtown, there were quite few places you could go to Close to the airport, 15min drive which was very convenient We used hotel car service which was very easy to book and they were also ready for us to leave when we were heading back to the airport Overall great experience
