The bathroom (private shower/toilet) does not have an exhaust fan. The towels are not 100% cotton, they have 3% polyester-- so they are very plush but do not get you dry. Add those two things together and you have to open the door to get enough air to get dry which can create a privacy issue! The hallway door is right there... in direct view of potty.
The closet is small, ironing board hangs into the space where the closet door would close so you lose 2-3" of access into the already small closet space. (Add a couple of women attending a convention who will be changing into formal dresses every night for dinners and this becomes a problem.) Sink space is rather invaded by the coffee maker, so if you have a roommate with lots of accessories, you may get your toothpaste and coffee amenities all mixed together in the same small space! There seems to be a lack of electrical outlets near sink and in the room; although the lamps have their own built-in single outlet.
Beds are comfy. Sleeping was very QUIET. (recent renovation must have added sound-proofing because I heard nobody above us or beside us and my convention group was large-- booked the facility within 80% of their capacity) Furniture is new with a seemingly asian/modern flair! We had a small fridge in our room-- very nice. There is a liquor store right next to the hotel, they sell overpriced milk and cereal; however their cookies and candy is cheaper than the hotel gift shop. Their prices for a case of water was $8.50 and I get that stuff at my local grocery store for less than $3. Large selection of wine but I couldn't tell ya if it was overpriced or high quality stuff, or not! Most of the liquor store customers seemed rather low class and several would walk thru the hotel parking lot after making their purchase... so I made especially sure my car was locked and empty. Parking was ample, gated. At the end of a week, no problems in the parking lot. No bellman service, ONE luggage cart in the whole place, so ya may want to bring a collapsable little red wagon of your own if you have extra paraphanelia...
Hey-- the only reason I am staying at this hotel is because a convention I need to attend is here and we got a $109 rate for 2 queen beds. The front desk check in was very polite, quick and tricky-- they will hit your card for $50/day for "amenities" (according to hotel policy), even if you pay with cash upon arrival. I told them NO, turn off the cable movies and room service, etc. Manager obliged and made sure those charges were reversed on my debit card the next day, she had a really friendly and professional attitude about it. Coffee shop has very good meals, reasonable prices, very, very, good service-- Thank you Julian for taking excellent care of us!
The manager and banquet staff were introduced at our convention meeting and told us about the complete renovation the facility has recently had. Its nice inside, only found one ripple in the carpet on a ramp leading from convention space over to room tower. The lobby is spacious with several TV's and enough lounge space for spouses and teens to kick back. I heard the bar was good and it has some extended hours. Overall the banquet staff were very pleasant, responsive and accomodating to all the special needs of our large group for a whole week.
