I was nervous about staying here after reading many reviews ahead of our visit but I was pleasantly surprised! Here are my pros/cons:
-Beautiful lobby/atrium which was a great place to sit in between meals, etc.
-We were allowed to check-in 2 hours early without any hassle
-The suites are very spacious, comfortable, and VERY clean
-Nice view from our room, which faced I-drive
-Small amount of noise from bars that are way across a 4-lane street (I-drive); not bothersome at all and I'm a light sleeper
-Wonderful, plush beds
-Housekeeping cleaned our room early every day and did an excellent job
-Nice having a separate living area from the bedroom for family members to spread out
-Sink and vanity in every room
-Fridge and microwave saved money on food (we were able to eat restaurant leftovers, etc)
-EXCELLENT and generous breakfast included every morning! We LOVED it!
-Free cocktails and snacks every evening in the lobby
-4 fast elevators; never waited more than a minute for an elevator
-Lobby renovations were being completed the day we checked in so it's obvious they're in the process of updating their décor
-Indoor and outdoor pools were so much fun and very clean; kids and adults really enjoyed!
-Store in the lobby has everything! And, they're open from 7 am-midnight every day
-I-trolley shuttle stop is right outside the hotel and very convenient to ride
-Excellent location along I-drive with every restaurant imaginable within walking distance
-Every single staff member was courteous, friendly, and helpful. We really felt welcome.
-Room décor is outdated and the couch is not comfortable (but who cares, we weren't signing a lease)
-No airport shuttle; you could take the bus(es), I guess, but we chose a taxicab for convenience and it was $50 each way
-It was a little awkward to have those windows in the front of the room where people could see into each other's rooms while walking by
Overall, I am so glad we stayed here. I would DEFINITELY stay here again! We did not have any issues with hot water, waiting for elevators, or excessive noise as several other reviews mention. We all had very hot water immediately for showers and our stay was wonderful.
