Nice spot close to lots of restaurants and the subway red line. Hotel itself is very basic but has amenities you want. Our room was quiet and on upper floors so nice, especially being in downtown. Restaurant on site it bit different than most Courtyards so nice touch and the donut shop "Glazed and Infused" on the ground floor has...

The location is great but the Fire house is near by try and get a room on the Hubbard side it's a little quieter. The Doughnut shop and restaurant are very good. It's your standard courtyard room clean and comfortable. Overall it's a good place to stay sans the street noise

I stayed here on business. Great looking, clean and modern hotel. Great location--lots of good access to many thing neat things. Rooms are good sized, and there's a good restaurant in the lobby. As noted--it was pretty noisy at night and I was on the 15th floor, north side. I think there's a fire station and it seemed they had...

I was a bit hesitant about booking this hotel after reading the reviews regarding the noise. We stayed on the 15th floor and I was surprised as I could not hear the noise, even without earplugs that were provided.The beds were comfortable. Room was clean. The valets were very very helpful. The only reason I didn't give hotel excellent review...

The staff was beyond nice during our stay. The front desk staff remembered our daughter's name each time, and gave her a coloring book and crayons when we got there. The bellman was very helpful and nice. They went above and beyond; I would come back for this reason alone! I thought the rooms were very fair priced, especially for...
