The entire hotel is rundown. It desperately needs a facelift. Poor signage, so Uber drivers always needed additional landmarks to find the hotel. The nightly rate was not inline with the caliber of this facility.
I've stayed here a number of times, and it's OK -- pretty typical Homewood Suites amenities. However, this particular property has a parking problem. Because of the Medical school next door, street spaces are all taken, but they share a lot with the Hilton down the street. They moved to an "automated" system whereby you take a ticket and then have it validated by the desk clerk and they charge your room $12.
When I was there last week, the system never worked -- every time I entered, I had to get a valet from the Hilton to let me in, then, after I validated the ticket, I couldn't leave the parking lot. So I had to run back and forth to the hotel (about 150 yards) to ask them to call security, go back and wait for them to let me out.
I'm not sure what the $12 was for.
