5.0 Okay
Pros: it was located in a great spot.
Cons: the smell of the room! and also I thought I clicked/paid for a 1 room hotel and when I got there they told me that I had paid for a 2 bedroom and did not want to credit me any money back. I DID NOT APPRECIATE THAT.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The suite-style rooms are great, although probably a little big for one person for one night. If I was staying longer I would have really loved having a suite. Comfortable room. Friendly staff. Clean.
Cons: Breakfast was sub-par, although I usually never expect much (if any at all). Elevator was really slow - not a big deal, but most of the time the stairs were faster for me.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was very clean and well maintained.
Cons: In the breakfast area, I suggest you do not have the TV tuned to the news channel. This includes CNN and MSNBC. It was unbearable to hear anti-American rants at 8 am. Who wants to listen to that at the start of their day. I suggest having a family channel on or something not so anti-American.
