I was very pleased with this hotel. The location is in what I would call a little commercial park, surrounded by companies by day and a few restaurants by night. (There is a Kinko's conveniently located right across from the hotel, within the park.) It's close to a few restaurants within walking distance, and a large variety of diversified non-chain restaurants by car (including Thai and Korean!) as well as your typical chain restaurants. There's a Starbucks right across the street.
The hotel, from the outside and lobby, looked a bit dated. But the room itself was great! Clearly renovated recently, as the carpet and bed linens looked brand new. Plenty of pillows and the bed was comfortable, and a beautiful and large flat screen tv in the room with many channels. The bathroom was small, but it was clean. My only complaint was that the curtain on the shower wouldn't stay closed, and the fan in the shower wasn't adequate to clear the steam.
It's a little cramped around the bathroom, because the bathroom is small and the vanity is on the outside, sort of in the walkway to get to the rest of the room (right after you enter the room). But there's a very spacious desk which divides the bedroom from the living area, which is also very spacious.
I thought the breakfast was fine - waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, some whole fruit, and packages of oatmeal. I was a little disappointed that on the second morning the coffee was out, and it was still early and not a lot of people down there. I just went back to the room and made some up there with the in-room coffee pot. The room also came with a microwave and refrigerator, conveniently hidden in a tall cabinet which holds the tv.
The fitness center was larger than I expected. It had a couple treadmills, a stairmaster, one or two bikes, and a bunch of weight-lifting equipment. It, too, had a nice flatscreen tv. I wish they would have provided sanitizing wipes for the machines like so many other hotels do.
I loved the water dispenser in the lobby, and used it often to refill the free bottle of water they provide you with upon arrival.
All-in-all, I would definitely stay here again.
