Nice Place
The room thermostat didn’t work—stuck at 75 and didn’t sleep well as it was too cool for me. Would’ve been nice to have a sink with drain stopper to wash small items of clothing, or at least a plastic trash can (as they had more elaborate wooden ones). No safe to secure $. Nice small fridge, but NO morning coffee in room or lobby. Nice Gym, but it should have a clock. Overall, nice place.

Room 301 - smelled of body odor, no dresser or hangers in room - just a few hooks. Loud mechanical noises in the building that occur every 5-10 minutes all night long. More like a glorified hostel than a proper hotel. Very disappointing
