Good Stay, Good Value
A pretty good stay overall, staff was very friendly and helpful with train information and such. Room was very clean and updated, water was hot right away and A/C-heat worked great. The only not so great is the noise. Our room faced the street so some noise comes in, but the worst noise comes from allnof the hallway movement and doors from other rooms. The other thing is that public transportation is a 10 min walk so that may not great if you are using this method to move around.
