  • Diring the covid 19 are people still sharing bathrooms? Seems a little unsanitary otherwise id love to stay here.

    Ensuring the safety of guests and staff is our top priority. We have staff onsite 24 hours a day sanitizing these areas every hour. While bathrooms are still shared, we've added gloves and sanitizing spray in each one for guest use & convenience.

    Asked about: King Suite • Answered on November 19, 2020
  • Do you have onsite parking? What is the daily fee? Thanks

    There are a couple of different parking options, depending on how much you’ll be utilizing your car during your stay. If you plan on using your car often, I would recommend using the garage our hotel is affiliated with-- it is $25.00/day and grants unlimited use, so you can come and go without paying each time you leave. If you are planning on leaving your car, and not use it while you are here, I would recommend the city parking garages near the hotel. There is one only about a block and a half away, called the Brewery Blocks parking garage, who’s rates vary between $12-$18/day (depending on arrival and departure times). We also have metered parking around the hotel. You would need to pay the meter until 7pm, and then the meters shut off until 8am the following morning (1pm on Sundays). When arriving at the Crystal Hotel, please feel free to use the loading zone for check-in, and you can talk to any agent about parking options again at that time. Thank you, Rachael
