This hotel is in good shape physically; the lobby, elevators, halls, and rooms are fresh-looking and clean.
I had a whirlpool suite, which isn't really a suite because it's all one big room with no separate areas. It was plenty spacious, though, and well-appointed. The bathroom was well-lit, which was a pleasant departure from many hotels, and the shower head was nice and tall. The bed was very comfortable, although the pillows were way too squishy for my taste. High-speed Internet access was free. The air conditioner is the newer kind that doesn't run constantly, and when it cuts off you can hear traffic from the road below. Fortunately the traffic in that area does die down in the evenings, but if you're a sensitive sleeper you may want to bring a small fan for white noise.
The pool was nothing out of the ordinary, but was clean and in good shape.
I ran into a few problems... I had requested a lower-level room away from the elevator, but was given the EXACT opposite: a top-floor room directly beside the elevator. There was a burned-out light over the whirlpool. The safe didn't work (it was an electronic one that displayed an error message on the screen when you tried to lock it). And most annoying, the shower was SCALDING hot. Even on its coolest setting, it was just about unbearable.
I reported these issues on check-out (I was only there one night), and the clerk at the front desk was very apologetic. She credited me back the price of my and my wife's breakfast in the hotel restaurant, which was a nice gesture and something I had neither expected nor asked for.
Speaking of the restaurant... It has a combination of a buffet and cook-to-order eggs and waffles for breakfast. The food was good, but quite a bit overpriced (something like $10 or $11 per person).
Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and would stay there again. It's a solid 3 or 3.5-star property.
