This hotel is located right beside a shopping mall. We were trying to locate this hotel in the run up to Christmas and ended up driving through the neighbouring mall. Not a good idea. Try to stay outside the mall if possible.
Pros: The room was generously sized, with fridge (can't remember microwave or not), separate bathroom contained within the room and a decent size TV. The breakfast was a large spread containing cereals, fruit, and baked goods. Coffee is freely available all day.
Negatives: I was looking forward to using the fitness center, but it was a little sparse containing only a recumbent bike, treadmill and elliptical machine. There was no weights machine, free weights or otherwise. While potentially useful for keeping fit on travels, it will not fulfill all needs. Also, the pool described by staff as 'heated' was cold and not very clean. There were notices around the hotel notifying customers that staff were being let off early for Christmas, but I feel that basic services like this should be maintained.
Overall, if you want somewhere to stay in the Kendall area without the need for health/fitness equipment I would recommend it.
