Not a Luxury Hotel.
Stayed in a recently renovated King room. Very lovely and comfortable. Great bed and linens and for a change. Spacious bathroom with both superb tub and separate shower. Nice you can chrome cast in addition to cable. Pretty lobby with live music in the evening. Cons- off site covered but not heated parking or $$$ valet same lot. Room backed on railway tracks and loud trains all night. Could hear voices in hall. Professional service but no warmth.
