Common room, not my thing!
I never imagine that I would be spending a date night in a Shared common room with two more strangers! I had to walked out and check out immediately! This is a no! No! No! And yes, a waste of money!

Loud street noise on lower floors and other issues
My stay on the second floor left me entirely tired from the garbage truck and freight delivery activities at night. The sound was so incredibly loud. The early morning and day noise was loud too, but tolerable. I would avoid staying on lower floors in this hotel. Also, check in took 25 minutes since the self-check kiosks were not functioning and the guest services phone calls either included long waits or no one picking up at all. This hotel needs to get its customer service in order. All channels of communication are problematic.

When I checked in, the hotel had already put someone in the bed that I was assigned to. So I walked into someone sleeping,
