This hotel excels in many areas--new, modern, clean. It has a great kitchenette for everything a business trip needs. Free dvd rentals, food store downstairs. Fitness center is good. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the one area this hotel fails in is the most important--bed comfort! The hotel does not offer a king size bed! I'm a tall guy, and when my wife is with me, we need a king size bed. None exist in this hotel. The queen size bed offered is more like a midget queen. That is the smallest queen size bed I've ever been in. The bed was too small for me, and my wife complained I kept waking her up with all my tossing and turning. Quiet level was great, but then I requested a room facing the parking lot--I've learned that from past hotel experience. The other downer about this hotel--no housekeeping service. If you want clean towels, you have go downstairs and get them yourself. Not a big deal, just a minor annoyance.
This hotel excels in all areas, except for the most important--bed comfort. If they started offering king beds, I would give this hotel 5 stars.
