This place looks great from the outside and is in a fantastic location. We did not have a reservation, we were walk ins. At $79/night + tax for two people, it is overpriced. When we first got to the room it seemed okay, large room with TV and itty bitty fridge. Sink was separate from toilet and shower, AC worked well. So we plopped ourselves on the bed and relaxed for a while. About half an hour later I decided to take a shower. In the bathtub there were about 10 dead ants with wings. It looked like maybe the tub had been sprayed with pesticide resulting in the carnage I found. At first I thought not a big deal, at least they spray for bugs. But then I found a few live ones crawling around the bathroom including one on my foot as I was getting ready to shower, and upon closer inspection more dead ones on the floor and even on the towels. The hotel has a policy of no refunds after 15 minutes so that combined with the fact we were exhausted led us to suck it up and just stay there. The bed was hard, even my husband thought so, and the pillows (three) were super flat. I had to double mine up to make it comfortable. Comforter was satiny soft on top, but itchy and scratchy underneath, and the sheets, while they basically looked clean, felt grainy and dirty. Yes, there is a lot of traffic and train noise, but it didn't bother us. We were disappointed especially with what we paid for the room, and would not recommend this place or stay there again.
