Fort Wayne is one of those cities which are impossible to get around if you do not have a car. I have no problems getting taxis (which are not too common and generally not that attractive to sit in), but when the hotel does not have a bar or restaurant when you arrive after a long flight, it becomes a...

For future reference I wanted to let you know we do have a hotel shuttle that runs Monday-Thursday and frequently takes our guests to many restaurants and local attractions.

Stayed for a month and can't say enough good things about the staff here, everyone I interacted with was pleasant and helpful. The suite was large enough to be comfortable in, and if you get tired of your room there is a large area by the front lobby to hang out with a TV and fireplace (I took advantage of... More

Stayed for a volleyball tournament. Rate was higher than other hotels however expected better beds and facilities. Bed, pillows and pull out were all very hard and uncomfortable. Kids were looking forward to the pool however my eyes stung from the bleach odor sitting out of the pool within 10 minutes. The hotel was sold out however there was only... More

This is my number one choice to stay in Fort Wayne. Excellence all around including the suite, the staff, the breakfast, the evening social gathering, the pool and spa, the work out room, the housekeeping staff, the front desk staff, the parking and the proximity to everything you need for an extended stay. Easy access to I69, grocery stores, restaurants,... More

We stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving week with my family and really loved it. I was very impressed by all of the little details that they added beyond what a normal hotel offers. For one, the pool was very warm...not like the polar plunge that we normally have to endure. I also liked the touch of having a charging... More
