Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms on my floor #6 were clean and modern and much nicer than the bedroom.

Disliked: The bed was squeaky and noisy. The room could have used at least one picture on the wall- maybe something similar to the ones that hung when you got off the elevator. It felt cell-like and barren without any decor at all. It isn't cheap for a place where you share the bath and now with the elimination of breakfast it seems a bit high.
