We have stayed at this hotel numerous times, the most recent being in early October. They are just finishing up on a major cosmetic renovation, and the public areas are much improved. The most noticeable aspect was that the staff was very solicitous and helpful. No matter what the issue, and there were a few arising from loose ends due to the renovation, they dealt with it quickly and effectively. The kitchen staff was especially helpful, and the price and variety of foods makes the full breakfast a good value.
