I was upgraded to an absolutely huge suite! I wish I weren't.
All the extra space was utilized by placing a table for 2 with 2 chairs. Think of the table sometimes found in a normal size room and you have it except, it's in a space the size of a decent sized dining room. I have absolutely no idea how I would ever use this extra space.
The A/C unit was, however, not upgraded to meet the needs of this much larger space. It ran at full speed (not quietly) and never got the temp anywhere near where I set it (70 if I remember).
The location of the hotel is literally off the freeway exit; as it, you exit almost directly into the parking lot and it sound like it. I requested a room furtherest from the freeway and was assured I was given a room that "couldn't be further from the freeway". Guess what I overlooked from my room? The freeway...
The restaurant/lounge was serviceable as a lower end hotel restaurant. I had a drink and was fed - end of restaurant review.
Would not stay here again and am staying at fewer and fewer HI's overall - too bad as they were a decent hotel brand after the relaunching a few years ago.
