1/25-1/26 Stay
Stayed at the hotel for the NHL all star game. This was very close to the arena which was great. It was clean and I loved the jacuzzi tub but we couldn’t get the jets to work. There were a lot of nice in room amenities like a dresser, full length mirror, and large closet space. Overall it was worth the price for the convenience. I just wish they had a later check out than 12 PM.

Great area, old hotel.
It’s an old hotel.... don’t expect much from it.

"It sucks" would be a compliment
30 years ago Hotel Arena would have been state of the art. Unfortunately there has been no good updating since then. Management seems lax with piles of dirty laundry and dishes around the place. The bath in the room was dirty and stained. The place oozes clutter and 'tired'. I wouldn't stay here again.
