Everything you need for a great stay
Great stay! Well-appointed room; had everything we needed and then some for our family of five. Very comfortable beds and exceptionally clean. The made-to-order breakfast was great and the portion size was perfect - not too much or too little. Excellent location. We’d stay again!

Great proximity to campus, right next to the Voxman. Ped mall nearby had lots of food options and a cool vibe. Very convenient. Helpful front desk staff! Calm interior spaces and the room set up was generous … had a kitchenette which was fantastic!

After traveling all day with massive airline delays and cancellations due to the weather my team checked in late. Unfortunately, one of our reservations was considered cancelled without notice. In order for my team to stay there we had to pay twice for a one-night stay. That is not correct, and we should be reimbursed. Terrible way to run a hotel!! We are very disappointed with the Hotel's determination and will have to jump thru a bunch of hoops to get our money back.
