I had a great experience. The desk clerk was very helpful. He listened to my request of a quiet room and I feel he found a good room for me. The first night I heard a lot of sirens but either I got used to them or there weren't any sirens the next nights. The room was small but that didn't bother me except that the drawers for putting my clothes in were too close to the bed and it was a little difficult to open them. The lobby and the Redwood room were really nice. The elevators worked well. The area is just on the border of a bad area, but it was fine. I liked the bathroom and the room darkening curtains. I wish they didn't use small bottles of shampoo, conditioner and soap. Many other hotels I have stayed in these days have refillable dispensers. All in all a very good stay!

The hotel was lovely and the staff very friendly. The only real bummer is the state of the surrounding neighborhood which has seen better days.

Only thing to note is that there was a used K-Cup in the coffee machine and coffee hadn't been replenished. Otherwise, great trip.
