“Great Little Touches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2009

Pro: Great location and nice touches
Con: Rates were higher than other hotels in area, no free wi fi in room, and not part of a larger hotel chain (loyalty program)
Summary:
Never stayed here before but really glad I did. The King Suite consists of a living / work area, bedroom area, and bath room. The nice touches were separate vanity area with full length mirror, makeup / shaving mirror with magnification, really good dryer (one of the best for hotels), and cook to order breakfast with an additional buffet bar. There was a flat screen TV in the living & bedroom area. Just wished this hotel was part of a larger chain so I could get loyalty points (perks for a business traveler). The fitness room was OK, no individual TV monitors for cardio equipment, just 2 corner mounted TV screens so had to wrench your neck to watch TV without falling off equipment.

The room was so nice, and the beds very comfortable. The room was actually nicer than my home.

We loved our room at the Plaza Suites - it looked exactly like the hotel photos. Sometimes there's really no point to a suite becuase the walls are so thin that you might as well be in the same room - not the case here. It was nice and quiet so our daughter could sleep while we could watch tv in another room (perfect with her early bedtime!). Decor was updated and the entire hotel was clean.

I stayed only one night, so didn't have a chance to explore much.

Positives - large rooms, large TVs in living room and bedroom, decent breakfast, free parking, internet relatively cheap ($6 for 24hrs).

Negatives - trash behind bedside dressers, constant noise from Interstate 101.

We stay here three or four times a year with 5 baseball team families, and it is the best place we stay all year long. The staff is outstanding, the rooms are very nice and clean. Beds are really comfortable, and it is like a home away from home for our family. We wish there was a Plaza Suites in every town we travel to as it is the BEST place we stay all year.
Thank you!
