The hotel itself is very nice, not your typical chain. Staff is friendly,rooms are clean and well stocked with amenities. They also offer a breakfast buffet and evening happy hour (5:30-7:30 pm) which is included with your checking in.
I have two observations which I feel they need to consider and improve on.
#1: have a staff member monitor the cocktail/breakfast area, the patrons seem to have forgotten their manners and left their trash laying around for others to deal with. We had to "clean up" after the other guests in order to have a semi clean area to enjoy.
#2: it was a bit uncomfortable to have the coffee pot in the bathroom, just think about that for a second. I didn't want to go into the bathroom for coffee after someone else has been in there to do their business, even if I do love them! Not a great way to start the morning!
Other than these two personal observations, I would definitely recommend a stay here. It's quite even though it is right next to the express way. Stayed in room 229& 231, which are adjoining rooms, since we had the young adults with us. Close to nice restaraunts, campus, theater etc.
