We stayed here for the better part of a week on our recent trip. The hotel was extremely affordable, in a great location, and really great in accommodating my family. We have two young kids, one of which was teething, and they put us in adjoining rooms on the top level in the back corner so we could have a quiet area while not disturbing other residents. The atrium was great for walking around and exploring with the kids, and the swimming and arcade area was a wonderful distraction as well. Hands down the best part was the breakfast - they had a huge spread with made to order omelets and tons of other options. That saved our family a ton of money, and it was delicious. My complaints are few - they use memory foam mattresses which I'm not a fan of, but that's my personal preference. The other issue was the outside security card reader on our stairwell was temporarily broken and anyone could just walk right in, and sure enough, one morning when we went to leave there was a vagrant sleeping in the stairwell. I'm sure once that's fixed that won't be an issue! Loved the hotel, and we will absolutely use the Academy again.
