The room was large and comfortable. There was a sofa to relax in with a convenient position to see the wide screen TV. Many comparable hotels have only a chair or a sofa that does not face the TV directly.
The hotel staff keep the rooms looking presentable and clean.
"Babbington's" restaurant is a very fine dining experience. The dinners are of a high quality. The breakfast offerings are very satisfying.
Despite the busy highway location, my room had no traffic noise.
The hotel staff were efficient and friendly.
One of the region's major shopping malls, Charlestown Square, is located about 5 minutes away by car. It can be reached in an easy 15 minute walk.
I chose to stay at Best Western Plus Apollo International. I had stayed at the hotel twice before. The location was near to the places that I wanted to visit.
I recommend this hotel. I will stay there again.
