It's too bad that with the many good features of my room, it was the one bad that will linger in my memory. My room was huge - - two king beds and a separate entry room with a desk and sitting area (which I did not use). However, in the bedroom there was not a single electrical outlet within 12-15 feet of either bed! There was an outlet buried behind one of the beds but the only bedside lamp and alarm clock were plugged in there and I couldn't reach it anyway. There were two other open outlets on the far wall but not at all convenient for my cellphone, tablet, or cpap machine. When I called to the front desk to request an extension cord, I was treated as if I had asked the craziest, most unreasonable question ever.
The bed I slept in was very comfortable; air conditioning/heater worked well; TV channels everything I like. Although the internet was decent, the hotel next door had a stronger signal and popped up as the preferred network each time I connected.
The red 'coverlet' on the bed did not appear to be clean - - I crumpled it and put it on the floor, expecting it to be replaced, but found it back on the bed the second day. Two of the bath towels also looked suspiciously 'used' and the easy chair did not look especially clean.
The hotel is not near the airport but it would have been nice to have a realistic option for transportation to and from.
My room (512) was right beside the elevator but I heard absolutely no noise from it throughout my stay. Also heard no noise from the hallways, neighboring room, or exterior. Breakfast was standard HIE fare and the breakfast attendant was exceptionally warm and welcoming.
All in all, I probably would book elsewhere next time. Lots of newer hotels right in the area.
