The hotel overall was fine. The lobby and restaurant seemed nice. The rooms were okay- bathroom seemed clean but really didn't feel clean (if that makes sense). The carpet in the room almost felt damp- it bothered me enough that I didn't walk around without...More

Parking is free if you are a hotel guest. There is a LARGE lot. I don't know where the arena is.

There is no hot tub. The pool is a decent sized standard hotel pool. I would guess that it was originally outdoors, but was enclosed several years ago.
