Pros: The hotel is very conveniently located. The property and the rooms themselves were nice. It's an older .place, so could use some updating, but the room was large and had a nice balcony.
Cons: There was a Beer Festival going on, so I'm guess that's why the rate was so high. The service here was terrible, other than the woman that checked us in, the hotel staff we encountered were unhelpful and unconcerned about any thing going on in the hotel. We discovered at 8:15 AM that our toilet wouldn't flush. No water was going into it. We called the front desk and were told there was no maintenance on Sunday, so we would have to change rooms. As soon as she discover where an empty room was, we could move. Well, guess what, she never called. My husband poured water into the tank of the toliet using the ice bucket and we were finally able to flush!! This hotel also offers a lot of amenities, one of which is a very nice breakfast served until 10 am on Sunday. At 9:30, there were a few scrambled eggs, an empty potato tray, an empty bread basket and 3 slices of bread for toast. Oh, and 1 &1/2 bagels. At 9:45 there was nothing left except some yogurt and cereal. No cups for coffee. When I went to the front desk to say there was no food, a very uninterested young woman told me that was the kitchen guys job. The kitchen guy showed up around 10:15 to clean up. I would definitely not stay here again or recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Good location
Cons: No hot water in the shower. Motion sensor light in the bathroom doesn't stay on for longer than 5 seconds. Breakfast is average at best. Noisy pigeons on the roof.

Pros: The location
Cons: The front desk. When checking in we were told they did not know about the Marathon and could not provide breakfast early. She said she would try for coffee and pastries. At 500-530am no one at the desk at all much less coffee and pastries. No do not disturb sign in room. Phone not operant in room. Very poor accommodation.
