    We took this hotel as it was reasonable priced for the quarter, USD 240 for a 2 bed room. Room was small, AC was loud, view from the room wasn't great. Staff was friendly but in general it should have been renovated this place.

    Thank you for noting our great location and friendly team. Most of the hotels on Clifton are historic in nature so will appear dated. The AC units typically operate on a high fan mode which is louder than normal.

    There is a lot across the street which is best for overnight parking. Meters do not allow you to feed them for an overnight park.
