4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

As much as I love a good road trip a new hotel, in a new city every evening can lead to a sort of dream like state and deja vu. This hotel is the answer for that. You will find it quite surprising. Kitschy, asian time warp. I found it a delightful surprise. A darkened lobby, soaring ceiling and hanging... More

I arrived at this hotel around midnight for a 2 1/2 week stay. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant. Check-in was fast. I rented a King Suite, which had a nice sized living room separated from the bedroom by a bathroom & a kitchenette. The bathroom looked to be newly done over with a nice walk in... More

This was the 11th night of a road trip. We stayed in various HIE's on nine of those eleven nights. It was nearly eight pm by the time we pulled off I-75 and we were tired and unwilling to "shop." We paid the price. In retrospect, if I'd noted that it was a "conference center", I would have suspected that... More

Hotel is beautiful. Staff is not very attentive or helpful. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast is a little pricey, but Cracker Barrel is close by. Asked for extra pillow but didn't get it. Asked if we could get pizza delivered. The staff couldn't tell us?!?

This hotel is first class all the way! The atrium/lobby area are beautifully decorated! The glass elevator allows you to see all the decorations. It is simply gorgeous. The rooms are quite large and the beds are so comfortable! The insulation must be top-notch because we heard NO noises whatsoever during our entire stay. I have nothing but good things... More

I liked the hotel just fine. They have a very nice lobby and the rooms are adequate. My problem with the hotel deals with one staff member. I had made 3 reservations through an outside agent online. I later found a better deal thru the hotel online. Well of course, I changed my reservation. I called to get a verbal... More

What a beautifully decorated and appointed hotel. Stylish and appropriate for a weekend away with a partner or family. Great restaurant as well! The presidential suite is fantastic!

recent visit to the area for business and chose this hotel. I found the service at check in to be top notch and the common areas were in great condition. The room was spacious and clean and well appointed. I did not use the dining choices but found the notion of a restaurant on the 6th floor to be unique.... More

This hotel's Asian decor was not at all typical; a pleasant surprise. The central lobby is done in exotic furniture and fabrics, and soft piano music plays in the evening. It was very relaxing after a long day on the road, and interesting to stroll through. We were on a road trip, lugging a bit too much around. We had... More
