The room was a decent motel room, breakfast was okay and about what I would expect for a hotel of this level. There was a bit of noise when the Jazz game finished up (they apparently won). This would be a great place to stay for an event at the convention center, arena, or the pioneer theater. Location is good...

Parking stands out as a problem for me. It was difficult and a little frustrating. The room was okay, and the checking process was stilted and took longer than it should have. But the employee was professional and helpful and the property was clean. The best part is the downtown location.

This hotel was booked for me by a conference organizer and it turned out to be a most pleasant surprise. The hotel has been updated and modernized. Rooms were clean, modern and well-appointed. The location is great and the amenities great for business travelers. I will happily stay there again.

Clean, friendly, and overall, a nice place. Breakfast buffet was super, room was plenty comfortable. Staff couldn't be more helpful, and accomodating. Walking distance to everything. Even though our team didn't win, coming back to this place took some of the sting out of it.

My husband was there for business, and we really like being across the street from the convention center. From the check in desk to housekeeping to the breakfast, this was a great place to stay!

I haven't stayed here but I was delighted to see an HIE go up in such a great location. But please, get rid of the awful landscaping on the east side of the building. It would be better to have nothing but gravel or concrete than the scraggly, weedy-looking things that decline in height from south to north. You have...
