Terrible customer service. Car got broken into and the front desk workers did not disclose when we checked in that it is something that happened frequently. Front staff did not give us the ability to use the secure underground parking because “there weren’t many spots”. Terrible and Annoyed.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Have stayed here a few times and really like the convenient location to the downtown area. Staff are friendly and rooms are clean. Only negative is, there always seems to be an issue with the elevator which can be annoying.
