The staff was very friendly, polite, and accommodating.
Most of the hotel itself was average to very good. The meeting rooms were average, the lobby was very good, the bed was very good, the towels were great. The bathroom had some crackling of the plaster on the walls, and the fan was relatively loud and hard to get to a good medium temperature, warm or cold it could do, medium was hard. We left the fan on for white noise, because the window faced into the lobby and the people talking were a little noisy. Soundproofing could be better.
The service in the restaurant was good, but the food options were very limited, 4 adult entrees or a buffet, and only average in quality. Not a place I wanted to have multiple meals at.
There was a breakfast buffet included in our stay, and it was a full breakfast with eggs, pancakes, sausages, bacon, fruit, yogurt, hot oatmeal, breads, muffins, etc. A good variety of foods, average quality for items kept in warming trays.
I'd go back, but would prefer to eat elsewhere for lunch & dinner.
