# of Rooms
I loved staying at this location. It is really convenient. My wife and I just the stay in the epicenter location. Don't have to go anywhere else. I noticed people complain that the rooms are small. I think for 2 people it's just right. I love the king size bed. It is noisy at times but given the location it's expected. If you want to total quiet then don't stay at such a busy area. I did hear about a sweet dreams package which I would have asked for had I k own about it sooner. Overall I love the place
Nicely appointed room with two queen sized platform beds, lovely view of the city. Bathroom more than adequate with large shower. A nice safe for the guest to use. There are no drawers for storage of clothing; only open shelves...I laid out my clothes on the bench underneath the television, underwear and all. The hotel itself is extremely difficult to locate: my GPS stopped me at 4th and College; NO signage visible anywhere. It took another several trips around the block and a phone call to locate the correct building. Even when I found the parking garage, the signs in the garage were few and far between and very difficult to locate to direct me to the hotel. Then there is the parking itself...what was never mentioned when making reservations was the fact while it will cost $25 dollars to have the valet park my car for me, it will cost me $25 PER DAY to park it in the garage myself. This I was not told until AFTER I had parked my car...which would then mean for a three day stay, I would have to pay $25 dollars to move my car to have the valet park it for me for an additional $25. Their excuse? The hotel does not own the garage. I have been to other hotels around the country where the company had had contracts with the garage owners for a single, nominal fee for the entire stay, if not complimentary. A very poor reception for someone who had just spent 10.5 hours on the road.
Amazingly friendly staff, they part time foster a dog which is amazing too. The rooms are okay, it feels like they try to make it prettier than they try to make it comfortable. Overall enjoyed my stay, I like the breakfast, I thought trivia was a nice touch as well. I personally did not like the bed too much.
This is a nice hotel. The location is great and within walking distance to many restaurants and bars, theaters and even a bowling alley. Staff is courteous. Rooms are contemporary and well planned out. Amenities are also nice with a cute little bar on-site and an indoor pool.
Hotel was nice and clean. Great location downtown. You can easily hear the Epicenter but if you are at this hotel you probably want that experience anyways. You do have to ride an elevator to the lobby and then a separate one to your room and that was the only part I didn't like.
