Hotel is in a great location. It is undergoing some renovations and they are supportive of how that impacts your stay so very accommodating. HOWEVER, the usual Courtyard amenities are not given to customers. No water etc and desk staff speak condescending to customers. If you know where you are going etc you will be fine. Rooms visibly clean but if you move anything it is cruddy. Street people sleep just outside the main door and multiple food trucks on the street and they bug you if you walk past them. Building across street undergoing renovation too. Its on a One way dark street at night.
This is a very busy hotel. We were met by a very kind and competent manager who swiftly and cheerfully checked us in. The hotel was undergoing renovation but seemed to be staged and rerouted efficiently, i.e. breakfast was relocated to the basement with no apparent discomfort. The remodeled areas look beautiful. Can't wait to return to see them. Rooms were adequate. Ours seemed to have a smoke detector which had been taken apart. The more I looked at it I wondered if it was in working order. Please check room 3304. Also, I question overall security. Even though a card was required to access elevators, we rode twice on the elevators with passengers who seemed to not get off, enough to make me feel a little unsafe (floor 33 was the top floor). So a person responsible for security in the lobby would be more settling for me.
