I managed to lower the rate by $15 bu using the HOTWIRE coupon announced on BB.


Free breakfast



Business center

Fitness center

Golf nearby

Internet access



Self-service laundry

Smoke-free rooms


Internet is free for Hilton Honors members. I've joined the program for this reason, but it seems WiFi is free only if a hotel has been booked via the hotel website. 


I wanted to book the hotel yesterday to be able to make use of the coupon. However, the rate suddenly went up and I found it a bit strange: for single occupancy the rate was still $106, and it was even possible to book more than one room at this rate. Yet, when I changed it into double occupancy, it would go up significantly (about $150-160). Fortunately, the rate went down again today in the morning (European time), and I was still able to apply the BB coupon because it was still May 5th in some parts of the USA. 


I guessed the hotel name easily before making the reservation, so I was pretty sure which property I was about to book. I am very happy with the result; I think it is a very good deal.

I've been at this property and overall we enjoyed your stay.


The hotel is a converted residential apartment building that stands in the city as it's circular... which also makes all the rooms somewhat 'a slice of pie' shaped (and i believe all rooms have balconies as well, which is nice).  The included breakfast was inside the attached TGIFridays (yes, it's still a buffet... it appeared that the hotel runs the entire breakfast service on their own and there are no non-hotel guests or TGIFriday breakfast customers).  The manager's reception in the lobby was very nice, but also got quite crowded the day we were there.


Have a great trip.
