It was the perfect location and was near a decent amount of restaurants, bars and not too far from shopping. The hotel smelled amazing and the rooms are a decent size. Just wish the furniture wasn’t outdated as the headboard of our bed was peeling but the bed itself was comfy, the dresser was slightly chipped and certain channels on the TV often flickered and looked blurry. I’d stay here again if available.

    The hotel is directly across from Tr*mp tower. Thankfully our room faced away from the huge sign. Cleanliness was so so, bedding had a few stains at the skirting, there were clean glasses over old and used coasters in the restroom. Bed was comfy, front desk were nice. Door guy, never greeted, therefore we didn’t use his help.
