Pros: The location is perfect. The friday evening complimentary wine tasting was great. When we complained about the awful street noise at checkout, they halved our bill. That was nice.
Cons: Stained carpet, dull rooms. But the worst thing was the street noise. It was unbearable. We didn't sleep all night. We were on the 8th floor and could hear people talking, yelling, laughing. The traffic noise was extremely loud.
