    I recently attended a conference at the Georgia Tech Global Learning & Conference Center and was extremely impressed with the facility. It's not often that I'd give 5 stars to a conference center, but I think the Global Learning Center really deserves it. The conference rooms were comfortable and had all the technology that our tech-intensive conference required. Best of all were the fantastic SNACKS! Everyone agreed that this was the best hospitality we'd ever had at a conference. Bottomless Diet Coke! I was in Diet Coke heaven. How depressing it will be go to back to work next week at my Pepsi-corrupted institution. And brownies and ice cream in the afternoon helped us keep our energy up after the lunchtime lull. I found the conference center to be conveniently located, an easy walk from the Midtown MARTA station, or the frequently running Tech Trolley, plus with several places in walking distance for lunch. I wish I had stayed in the attached hotel, as it would have been very convenient. My only complaint was that the LAWN wireless network was not at all user friendly; luckily I was l337 enough to figure it out but many of my colleagues were not so fortunate. I would certainly look forward to another conference here should the opportunity arise.

    The conference center is state of the art. It is a big step up from when I was in school here. I spoke at a conference not long ago and I felt like a kid with all the gadgets in the classroom. I was dropping down screens and flashing my presentation like I was playing some sort of video game. There are plenty of rooms for concurrent sessions and a big lobby where lunch was served buffet style. Parking is right across the street and pricing was nice. I think I only spent $4.

    I have one word for the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center: Ugh. Possibly also: Eww.

    The one positive we experienced here was the front desk staff -- they were unfailingly pleasant and helpful and made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

    But their skills and personalities just couldn't make up for the lack of cleanliness in the hotel. The hallways looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in weeks, the air vents were filthy, and our bathroom was covered in hair. Yes, human hair. When we checked in, there was probably an average of a hair for every tile on the floor of the bathroom -- in addition to the one wrapped in the weave of the towel. We called down the next morning and let the front desk know, and they said that they would let the cleaning department know. We came back that night, expecting a change, and indeed -- now there was MORE hair. Hair on the toilet. Hair on the floor. Hair on the CEILING. And still that hair wrapped in the towel loops. Ridiculous. And the next day there was even more. It was like they got our complaint and went back to add hair to the bathroom. I hate to think what the carpet was concealing. Add to that the fact that the bathroom ceiling vent -- despite not being able to be activated by us (no switch!) -- was so thickly covered in filth that I don't think any air would have made it through had we been able to turn it on, and the room was a definite turn-off.

    In addition, at least 2 of the lights in the room were burned out, including the one in the entranceway, so we had to prop the door open to see our way to the bedside lamps to turn on the lights. Plus, bizarrely, the clock was a couple hours off, but they needed an engineer to come correct it. So did an engineer come change it to the wrong time in the first place? Weird.

    Location was good, and parking was plentiful, although not connected to the hotel in any way, which led to a short, cold, wet walk back to the lobby from the garage.

    We did check around town to see whether there were any other hotels with a vacancy, but because it was a big weekend, it seemed that the entire city was booked. So we stayed. And kept our socks on.

    Suprisingly, the Georgia Tech Hotel has a great pub.  Called the "Club Lounge", it has plasma screen tvs, free pool, and a cozy place to watch the game (or hang out after one at the nearby campus).

    I had stayed in the hotel for a week or so when I first came to Atl - it was very comfortable. Good facilities and always a comfortable atmosphere about the place.

    Left work on Friday at 9:30 - first bar on the way home is the GTTSHECC (?). So based on my my previous stay, the first review and 60 hour working week thirst I grabbed a grad student and stopped in for a beer and free pool. I expected the place to be busy as Tech had a home game the next day but there were two other punters, both business men talking about waffle sprockets or something - but not football.

    Free pool is good. Sport on TV is good. 420 on tap is good. Really comfortable bar stools is good. Hotel bars generally aren't good, mostly due to lonely business men. But it was a good place to stop for a slow chat over an unrushed game with cold (a little too cold actually) beer. Not for every night, but it does have it's own time

    I personally have a policy of never eating in hotel restaurants - however my colleagues ground me down over a year to try this place and I had been missing out!  With the President's private cafeteria at Georgia Tech closing down, there has not been a real 'fine dining buffet' option on the Georgia Tech campus until recently.  I have held several lunch meetings and even took my 4 year old after she found out they served unlimited deserts.  The menu changes daily, the dining room offers excellent food at a great price.  Chef Schatzer even came out to ask about the food - very classy and a nice touch.  This will become a staple for business meetings with the Globe going away.

    Who designed these conference rooms? They have to resort to stringing extension cords to all the tables, then taping these cords to the carpet. I'm not complaining about a couple cords. It's like your walking around a diorama of Europe. Laptops: technology of the future. And yet the rooms still have those ugly, Styrofoam ceiling panels, which presumably exist to facilitate flexible utility needs. These are some retarded architects.

    But not completely retarded. Stocked fridges embedded in walls in common area: genius. Piggery trumps technology.

    Rooms are fine. It's a short walk from the train if you'd rather not use take a cab. Barnes and Noble across the street should the need arise. Much better than being stranded out on a suburban highway.

    I came here a few weeks ago for a client advisory conference.  This was my first trip to Atlanta and was quite impressed.  I got checked in immediately, only a few minutes after my arrival.

    My room was the perfect size for one person.  Ethernet connections conveniently located next to the bed and desk.  I liked that I had the option to park my keister and laptop comfortably on the big easy chair with ottoman, desk, or bed.  Bathroom was new and very clean.  Big, thirsty waffle cotton robe was put to good use during my stay.

    And as Holly T. mentioned in her 3/22 review, I really liked the endless supplies of refreshments in the conference center.  There was a HUGE refrigerator of beverages, stocked with at least 5 versions (2 of them Diet, woo-hoo!) of Coke.  Someone could have fed an IV line to his or her room and there would still be enough Coke (yes, I still mean the drink, not the drug!) for everyone else.  I suppose Coca-Cola's headquarters nearby may have had some influence in the beverage options.

    I take off one star for the hour it took me to get connected on their wi-fi network and the initial problems I had making reservations online.

    The hotel is very close to all downtown locations, including the Georgia Aquarium and some wonderful restaurants.  I'm crossing my fingers that our hosts will hold next year's conference here again.

    I liked the hotel, nothing wrong with the facilities, but the price wasn't really right. The hotel is clean and the rooms are comfortable but it's overpriced. You have to pay extra for wireless internet, if  you get the business package you will have wired internet in the room, but remember to bring your ethernet cord (without that you are SOL).

    For some odd reason the hallway on my floor was noisy in the middle of the night, like they were moving things around or something. I stayed on the 7th floor. Don't know if that was the reason I woke up multiple times, but I definitely heard it while I lied awake in bed.

    The large screen TV is nice though, even though the TV's are HD ready, the channels aren't HD, just SD. The channel selection was fairly limited. About 20 or so watchable channels.

    The bar is alright, free pool tables. But the prices for drinks are kind of high - 6+ dollars for a beer.

    I went to the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta for a conference. My colleagues and I stayed there just for two nights. The hotel rooms were very spacious, clean and very comfortable.

    The food that they provided was great. We had a breakfast and lunch buffet which had a great assortment of hot and cold food. Their cakes and desserts were sweet and delicious.

    My favorite part of the stay is during the conference they have a break-out snack bar with lots of goodies including chocolate covered raisinets, pastries.  There's a reach-in cooler that is on the same floor as the salons where you could get your soda fix.

    The conference rooms themselves, in the some of the salons were a little tight but that could be because there were a large number of chairs place din the room. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

    Georgia Tech's Hotel and Conference Center can meet the needs of just about anyone. Whether you looking for a place to hold an awards banquet or a corporate meeting, you can count on the staff here to provide you with everything you need from wireless technology, computer projected retractable screens, to a catered three course meal. Just remind them what you need and what you don't need and when you need it by.

    When I was applying for internships this past year, one of the company's I applied to rented out a meeting room here and used it as a testing facility for all their applicants. I was assigned to take the test at 9 in the morning. Unfortunately though, when I arrived, I found out that the room was not ready and that the reservation for the room had been lost in the computer. The proctor and I had to wait in the reception area for about thirty minutes while the staff arranged a meeting room with lined desks, pitchers of water, notepads, pencils, a projection screen, and a white board. Although we were both a little impatient and thought most of the set up wasn't necessary, it did give us time to chat about the company and let me leave a good impression.

    So lesson is, if you do reserve a space here, check up on your reservation the day before to make sure the arrangement is in their computer.

    Yes, I'm a fan. This is one of my favorite places to eat, when I want to fill up.  Most of the staff all know my crew by name since we have been eating here for 4 years.

    Great buffet with smaller pan servings, which keeps fresh product coming from the kitchen. The action station will make you anything grilled as part of your buffet.

    The dessert selection is directly responsible for that pesky 7# that won't go away.

    After a late night at the venue, it's nice to walk a half block and have a great breakfast for a relatively great price.

    For what it is, it is very very good. Tell them "Rick" sent you.

    Like others, I wasn't sure what to expect from a university conference center, but I was quite pleasantly surprised. The lobby area was modern and attractive, the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and had adequate space. I was pleased with the exercise facility as well. Though I didn't get a chance to use the pool, it looked quite nice.

    The location isn't terrific in terms of restaurants, but there are many restaurants, shops & attractions within walking distance. We left our car in the adjacent car park and walked almost everywhere, much easier than figuring out routes in an unfamiliar city.

    I was skeptical about my visit to the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference center because I am a total hotel SNOB! There wasn't a JW Marriott , Hyatt, W or any name that I trusted tacked on to the end of the name. However this venue exceeded my expectations. I was here for managing an event and the staff were professional and punctual, and the facilities were up to date with the latest technology in event/conference services.

    The front desk staff remembered my name and the rooms were clean and had nice amenities. Free wireless was a plus!

    Downside is the location - if you need to be on campus it's convenient however there is nothing in walking distance except for an Arby's and a few chain restaurants. Atlantic Station outdoor shopping mall is an $8 cab ride away, and has plenty of restaurants to choose from.

    I have stayed at GT hotel many times in the past. This is a business class hotel. The rooms are what you expect. A bathroom and a bed room. The bedroom has 1-2 beds and a small table. The rooms are modern. You have to pay extra for internet access and the connectivity is mixed. The rooms are expensive and in my experience is service is not very efficient.

    The food in the restaurant is what you can expect from a business class hotel - generic and without much quality.

    The bar is great and has free pool tables. The drink are not exactly cheap.

    Overall generic quality at a high price

    Stayed here for 3 nights during a brief visit to Atlanta with my 2 cousins. We enjoyed everything about this hotel. I'm not sure if it was the time of year (last weekend in June) but there was hardly anyone around. Sometimes it felt like we were the only ones there! It made our stay very peaceful and relaxing. We imagined the case might be different if there were a convention or conference going on, but we lucked out.

    I chose this hotel due to the great reviews. Plus it was one of the few hotels in Atlanta that offered 2 Queen beds (as opposed to 2 Full beds...too small for 3 people!). The rates were very reasonable. The rooms were large and clean. Free wireless internet in the room. Only minus was that there's no mini-fridge (I tend to bring home lots of leftovers). However there was lots of lights plus large windows to allow for sunlight to pour in. Another minus - our toilet seemed to be clogged when we first arrived - I called Guest Services and a plumber arrived immediately and fixed the problem within 5 minutes. No issues with the room after that.

    The location was just a 10-minute walk to the North Avenue MARTA station. There was plenty of garage parking (with a flat fee for overnight) plus street parking. There was always someone at the front desk to help us.

    I especially liked the little shop next to the reception desk - had some snacks and essential items in case you forgot something. The breakfast in the dining room was delicious. $14/person got us an all-you-can-eat buffet including make-your-own omelettes, french toast, poached eggs, tons of fruit and cereal too. There is a Starbucks in the Barnes & Noble across the street in case you need a quick coffee fix after breakfast.

    The staff - front desk, dining area, cleaning crew - were all very professional yet friendly.

    Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Atlanta!

    this is the second time i have stayed here.  The rooms are nice.  Good Price.
    Parking is weird, but you can get a card from the front desk for $16.00 ... which is good if you are staying more than one night and will be going and coming from parking garage.
    Haven't ever eaten at the resturant.
    Hotel attendants are super nice and friendly
    Bar is nice place to go and have a drink.  "club room"
    I was a little disappointed the last time we stayed (NYE weekend) and went to the bar.  Usually they are open until there are no customers.  This night the girl was ready to go..  she ignored us repeatedly and acted in an indifferent mood to everyone. It was very obvious that the bartender just wanted to leave.

    Will stay again.
    They also offer AAA rates. I didn't notice on the website, but the front desk confirmed.

    I've stayed here a couple times now and they have a special GT grad rate which makes it nice. The pricing is very reasonable and the location is great for watching a GT game. We went for homecoming so it was packed with alumni and lots of alum events.

    The people working there are very pleasant and attentive. The rooms are well maintained but the hallways tend to be loud and the walls are paper thin. The bar/club room downstairs is nice (I met Coach Gregory of the men's bb team at the bar) however the drinks are very pricey (7.50 for a beer).

    The rooms are comfortable, adequate and again, the location for a GT game is perfect as you are walking distance to the stadium. The MARTA is closeby too so if you are coming from the airport this place is very convenient. No frills but gets the job done. Plenty of food options nearby the hotel in Technology Square and right across the street from the bookstore to get your GT swag.

    This hotel is a mixed bag.  There's quite a bit great about it, but some nagging issues.

    The hotel itself is quite good looking.  The tile, the exterior, it all makes the hotel very inviting.  The beds are ok, firm for my taste, but probably right for most.  Good sized bath room, plenty of space in the room, all making the stay more pleasant.

    Where you get stuck is in the details.  It would be been nice to have the hotel actually connected to the parking lot in some way so that you don't have to go out, around to the parking garage (which is an extra charge, but that's fairly normal for this area to my understanding), and up to get to your car each time.   There's only the one elevator, and while I don't mind the walk, some people are not going to enjoy the fairly long hall ways if they have to go to and fro.  It would have been nice to have a second elevator at the end.  Those are just minor offenses though.

    Worse is the other details.  I don't like the lack of fan in the bathroom, what poor design.  This is billed, and priced, like a three star hotel.  The light fixtures are poorly thought out, and often an add-on.  The light should be better, especially with a desk.  No direct internet connection in the room.  They have wi-fi for guests, but not a particularly good connection.  These things they can improve.

    The biggest hit, and the main cause for the two star loss (because aside from those other issues, the place is really nice) is the service.  Going to places both more and less expensive, the good hotels have great service.  This is not the case here.  They have adequate service, barely.  There's no smiles and greetings, and not really an effort to make you feel like a guest and not a burden.  Asking for something feels like I'm wasting their time.  They had a bellhop, but no offer to take my bags (I didn't need the help, but lost of places offer).   The hotel would be much better if the service staff made a concerted effort to be welcoming.  

    The next time I'm in Atlanta, I might shop around for my hotel.

    This review is for a two night stay here, as well as some of the dining options.

    Great - everything was immaculate, room was comfortable and spacious. Some noise due to being next to the elevator, but not really a big deal. Location was a bit annoying - there's not much nearby and the Starbucks didn't open until 10am! Not their fault, I guess, but still irritating.

    I had dinner twice - once around 8pm at the buffet, and once at 11pm in the club room. The buffet was pretty decent although a bit light on options. I really liked the mac n cheese and the creamed spinach though. Now, my other meal (Reuben from the club room) was borderline awful. The bread was soggy, sauerkraut only made it to one corner of one half of the sandwich, and there wasn't nearly enough dressing.
    Buffet 4/5
    Club room 1/5
    I'd probably be less satisfied if this wasn't being reimbursed.

    Reserved and confirmed room request far in advance of stay. Clerk had no record of the request. Had to move rooms, but still didn't get one that matched my request. Very poor reservation handling and guest service.

    It was my first time in Atlanta and me and my coworkers stayed here because we were attending a conference at this hotel.  The rooms are very nice and clean.  The WiFi is free if you are a guest and they have pretty much everything you need (food, drinks, little store, etc.) downstairs.  

    There was a bit of a mix up when we were checking in, but after everything was said and done things turned out just fine.  I didn't make it to the pool or fitness room, but a ton of people were heading there.  I can't speak on it, although I will say that they do have both those amenities.  

    Also, it is in a pretty good location.  You can walk a couple of blocks and find anything from bars, restaurants and a grocery market.

    Horrendous customer service. I waited for 45 minutes just to talk to someone about my reservation. I had to hang up several times to try to get the operator to connect me to someone who would actually answer and he just kept re connecting me to the line that no one was picking up.
    I was never able to connect with anyone and I won't be staying here every again.

    Spent a week at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center last month.  Stayed for a conference happening on-site. Overall, I found the staff to be accommodating and friendly. My room was adequate, cleaned daily. The people working in the cafeteria / dining room were always helpful. I would stay here again, and would recommend this as a place for travelers visiting Atlanta, and organizations seeking a venue for an event. There is a Publix a few blocks away, and a mini Wal-Mart a few feet away.

    Disclaimer: I've only ever been an attendee at the events in the conference center.

    That being said, I've been impressed with their banquet/dinner meeting service.

    While most of the meals are chicken, I've gotten vegetarian for the last few meals, and they've been better than other campus vegetarian options (It may help that the current president of the Institute is a vegetarian). The salads are fresh.  The rolls are hot.  The staff does a good job of presenting and clearing the food in a relatively timely manner.

    Parking can be expensive for Atlanta, so I usually prefer to park in the lot across 5th street from the bookstore.

    Although the hotel is pretty and the rate was great for a visiting GT student, these bds had to be the most uncomfortable thing on the planet.  
    Nighttime was horrid,  tossing and turning and aching back.
    This made the whole experience bad.

    I stayed at the Georgia Tech Hotel for a conference for 2 nights in late June.

    (1) It is right next to campus and so has location going for it.
    (2) The room was relatively spacious, had new furniture, and had a good workspace.
    (3) There are cabs waiting right outside the hotel, which made all the difference when I had to catch a flight in a hurry.

    (1) The single biggest one is that the staff seem to be all schooled in the same school - the one that teaches you never to smile and respond in monosyllables as much as you can. The staff seemed surly even though there was no mad rush that I could see. This was true of staff at the front desk, at the restaurants at the hotel, and the room service folks. I cannot say anyone was exceptionally rude, but just the whole attitude was - can you please get moving and let me in peace.
    (2) The area around the hotel has some rough spots. So you should be careful venturing too far out after dark.

    Why must I review this nice, efficient hotel while we are still here? Because I can, from the sweet little suite of computers available for free to guests! Macs in the lobby on a nice, high table (six of them, with good tall seats while you work/surf/whatever) and PCs in the business center upstairs. Nice.

    On the first day and a half of our weekend getaway, C and I went to N. Georgia and spent time in charming, tiny spots like Jasper for the night, and Blue Ridge and Ellijay during the day. We decided to return to the city to spend the other day and a half and after finding ourselves at the end of the Denver-New England game, deciding where to stay. Thanks to the hotel app he has (I think it is hotelfinder but not sure) he came across a deal for Sun night here. While he'd been for various things from business stuff to playing pool in the club room, I hadn't. Great location near GT (across from the Ga Tech Barnes and Noble) at Spring and 5th.

    Very nice staff. Last night when we checked in- C having just made the reservation some 10 minutes before we arrived- Jennifer at the front desk was preparing our details when we walked to the desk. Cool! This morning, because apparently I looked friendly typing away here on this (pleasantly large screen, especially for early in the morning!) Mac, the GM, David, introduced himself. He's run it for 10 years and was just as gracious and friendly as can be (he even gave me fatherly questions and good luck wishes on the new bf...it was cute!).

    Well-appointed rooms that definitely have the appeal-to-business-travelers look, very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The Woodbridge Inn in Jasper was quaint where the GT Hotel and Conference center is modern efficiency personified, but still with some warm touches like the reading library off the club room with comfortable chairs grouped throughout for visiting and such. Nice bar area in the lobby and in the club room.

    We liked that there are lots of restaurants (including the special WaHo right down stairs just outside the 5th St entrance!) within short walking distance, such as The Spence, which we could see directly across the street from our room and tried (to much enjoyment) last night! The Biltmore and Cypress, etc, are just at the end of 5th and W. Peachtree, and the little section on W. Peachtree with Steel, Marlow's Tavern, etc is just a little further down.

    Don't know that I'll have need to do any sort of stay-cation here again but I endorse this spot as a very pleasant place to stay!

    One of the things that I liked about the conference portion of the center is that they always had refreshment refrigerators and snacks throughout our conference. I think it is a nice touch and unique to this conference center. One thing they could improve is the food. I remember eating lunch and dinner here, but it was mainly filler food (chicken, pasta, etc.) They should work on trying to improve the food in general. At least the hotel portion was right above the conference rooms. It makes it convenient if you want a respite from all the conference activities.

    Just recently spent two nights here while attending a conference. The reservations process was easy and when I checked in, all was in order.

    The room was nicely refurbished, but they should have thought to have bedside lamps with outlets to recharge electronic devices. They just renovated. Someone should have thought of that. I had to plug in my phone across the room. Not nice since I use my phone as an alarm clock. The room alarm clock was not plugged in. I didn't want to dig around back there to plug it in.

    The room was clean in the middle, but around the edges, I could see dirt, dust, and hair. It wasn't horrible so I soldiered on. The second night, I came back late after a long day to find they had made my bed, but had not emptied trash or swept hair from the bathroom floor. Did not wipe bathroom sink either.

    I had been here several years ago and had a better experience. Don't think I would go back.

    Ok hotel. Near a lot of dining options and stores. I wish I could give it a higher rating but I'm pretty grossed out right now. I'm visiting Atlanta for a few days since my husband is here for a job interview. The company put us up at this hotel so I didn't know what to expect. When we got to the room we tried calling the front desk to see if we can get a fridge (which is an add'l $15/day!!) but our room phone wasn't working. No big deal. Later on that night I was getting chilly so I decided to put on the extra blanket that was in the closet. Big mistake. As I placed it on the bed and unwrapped it, there was a disgusting pube on it!!! Yes someone's pubic hair was left on the blanket. I understand it's a hotel and people come and go from each room. But if I'm staying in the room next, I expect it to be clean and at the very least hair free. So gross.

    I like this place a lot.
    It can be kind of sterile, but there is a lot that is doable here and the central location on 5th and Spring is awesome - I really enjoy the bar that they have on the bottom floor.
    We met in the little lounge to the side of the bar (the one with lamps made of books) and had the place pretty much to ourselves.
    Wish they had free parking!!!

    I will have to add one more star to all my other reviews to be able to give effectively zero stars to this place.

    I had this hotel reserved months ago. Tonight they were oversold and were trying to put me to a "half" of a junior suite with a pull out bed (fairly strange that this fact is only revealed to me after my credit card has been taken). In hotel's view, that was totally acceptable. $159 for a pullout bed?
    If the customer fails to show up, he or she is liable for costs of the first night but apparently this hotel does not have to honor its promises (king sized bed; etc) and is totally free of any obligations. I was also told that they didn't promise anything and I was told that in a pretty rude way.

    This of course just reinforces my opinion that "privileged" hotels (affiliated with large instructions like Georgia Tech) are not accountable and should be avoided at all costs.

    Spent 4 nights here for a conference this week.  

    Plus:  nice location, close to campus, several pubs and restaurants a quick step away.  Conference facilities are large and adequate.  Food was fair, lunch buffet was a decent enough attempt to be interesting, and different day to day.  One downside is that they don't offer unsweet iced tea during conference hours.  I had to specifically ask for that, and it only appeared twice.  

    Minus:  pricey. Rooms are boiling hot, and it was down into the 20's overnight this week, I set the thermostat to 64 degrees to keep it marginally comfortable.  There was no lotion in the bath supplies, only soaps, shampoo and conditioner.  Rooms have no fridge or microwave, making leftovers not an attractive option.  Television inexplicably does not offer the Travel Channel, which is my favorite.  Hotel bar is remarkably drab, almost as if were a hurried afterthought.  That, and it's airport expensive.  I suggest going to the Barrel House, or Plates and Pints nearby.  

    There are only 3 elevators, so when your conference of 300+ people breaks, it's a mad dash for them, or you can expect a long wait, as they are rather slow as well.  Did not use the pool or hot tub.  

    Overall it was rather disappointing.

    This is a fantastic hotel with one large exception.

    The rooms are nice, the staff are very friendly and the facilities are great. Free pool, good selection at the bar and a Waffle House in the same complex for late night snacking. The elevators are fast and there's four of them, so it's a very minimal wait.

    But, the air conditioner was terrible!!!  We had it set on 65 and the room was still warm all night long! We called the front desk and were told that this was the normal operation. That's a load of crap and we didn't appreciate being made to feel like we were fools with that comment.

    It's enough to make me look elsewhere next time I need a room. There are certainly many more choices.
