Nice hotel but...
Nice hotel, but hallway smelled like a locker room and pillows felt like bricks.

Gateway Hotel and Conference Center
I needed to check in a couple of hours early to get ready for afternoon events and was given courteous, special consideration. It worked out perfectly. I really appreciated it.

Great stay
Came for a concert at Stephens auditorium. Hotel was a comfortable clean and quiet. Stephens auditorium wasn’t the best place acoustically that I’ve been to it was only okay. Wouldn’t go back there for a concert but the hotel was a good choice.
