I stayed here recently for business, as were most guests it appeared.
The venue has some very nice amenities, but also a few annoyances.
The building itself is nice and the staff are friendly. The rooms are definitely top notch. Very clean with higher end furniture. It has a nice pool and patio area located in the middle of the building with an open air design in the center of the facility.
The breakfast/lounge area is very roomy and well appointed.
One of the nicer benefits is "happy hour". Each evening I was there, they had free drinks from 5 - 7 along with a modest meal/snack selection. A nice touch.
Parking is free. I never had any issues finding a spot.
The location is fine if your goal is to hop on the highway first thing in the morning. But I wouldn't rate the area as a tranquil retreat. It is located on a busy corner. The building is quiet though.
A few annoyances...
- The iron and ironing boards are ridiculous! The ironing board has a huge metal plate bolted, yes bolted, to the largest flat area of the ironing board. To top things off they have the iron fastened to the metal plate with a phone-cord style cable. The result is no room to iron your shirt, you can't take the iron to the sink to fill it with water and you're constantly fighting with the stupid cable when pressing your clothing. I'm sorry, I'm a very fair individual, but this is one of the most stupid arrangements I have ever seen in a hotel room. Seriously, who steals an iron? I'm still shaking my head and rolling my eyes at this one. Remove the plate and the cord and provide the same thing thousands of hotels provide.
- No Gym. As an option you can go to the "Y" down the road and show your room key. Seriously, if you're going to cater to business travelers have a proper gym onsite. It appears they have the room to accommodate this. This was disappointing.
I was prepared to give the property a Very Good vote, but it falls short in a few areas which really just make it average. Sorry, but it's the real opinion of a frequent business traveler.
