We were checked in with the room right behind elevator and it was very noisy, we asked front desk to switch to a different room and it was much quieter. It was Thursday and seemed the hotel was not fully occupied, we wonder why we were assigned to this noisy room at first place? We checked in before 4:00pm on that day.

Nice hotel, in a good location. The downside was the parking. They charge $15 a night. When you arrive at the hotel there is nowhere to park surrounding the hotel. You cannot enter their parking garage without a room key, which you get when you check in. So if you are alone, you are stuck leaving your car in front of the entrance with your flashers on while you check in. Otherwise, it is a nice hotel with a good restaurant.
