9,1 Wonderful
Pros:Location is perfect, steps from Union square, local music, theater and shopping. Price was very good.
Cons:Two complaints although minor would have been easy to fix. The room had a coffee machine with packaged coffee but house cleaning forgot to leave new coffee packets for Sunday morning. The car was valet parked in the garage for the weekend but it was returned with some very minor new scratches on the drivers door.
7,7 Good
Pros:We like the room set up and size. Good location .
Cons:Wifi was horrible!!!! Hounded daily to attend a Wyndham time share opportunity. Just one restaurant. Very loud in the mornings. Bathrooms were horrible and small.
8,0 Very Good
Pros:Pro: Free music!
Cons:Con: It was at 2:45 AM and closing the windows didn't help block out his persistant drumming.
