Definitely a mixed experience for me. The room severely needed an update because in the bathroom there was water damage on the ceiling, wall paper peeling, and a little bit of grime on the walls in general. The view and bed were great though, and I had an especially enjoyable experience at the hotel bar. Rob, the bartender, was very responsive and great to talk to.
As far as location goes, it was in the center of downtown, so easy access to everything. The parking garage was convenient too and had security making me not have to worry about the car at all (in case anyone cares).
Overall, if you can put up with the room because you're not in it long, then it's pretty serviceable as a hotel. Rate was about average I'd say.
