To start, the freeway noise is not the worst, simply ask for a high room and they will provide it. Secondly, the hotel is ultra modern! The rooms were huge for being basic and were very luxurious especially since I stayed in a 2 Queens and I got a leather sofa and mini fridge for the basic room! One of the best parts besides the fact that the hotel is so close to many great attractions! We hikes at Garden of the Gods and we could have walked to there! In this area, it is one of the few hotels that serve food all day and night long. The only drawback is that you have to wait a while if you get food at this place that is cooked to eat just for you. But, it is quicker than going to a restaurant. Overall, this hotel is amazing and preparing for the future. Come to this hotel, #1 in Colorado Springs!
