This hotel was a real surprise. It is in a great location, located adjoining the convention center and within walking distance of many of downtown Fort Wayne's major tourist attractions. It is 100% the nicest hotel in that area of Fort Wayne, and I strongly suggest staying here if you are walking as opposed to some of the cheaper area hotels, which are not in the greatest of areas. There are multiple bars, restaurants and eateries nearby; however, no grocery store and no hotel shuttle, which was disappointing. There is, however, a great restaurant attached to the hotel - Champion's Sports Bar & Grill - which also served a fair free breakfast. The rooms were spotless, which was the most important and satisfying part of our stay. The shower was whiter than white, the sink was clean and looked new, the whole hotel was clean and modern, and the rooms were spacious and well-kept. Housekeeping was incredibly thorough. I was in the room when they came and I stayed because I had no where else to go, and I watched them do an incredible job! This means a lot to me, since I am literally living in hotels for work one week at a time, and cleanliness keeps this kind of living sane! Housekeeping also was sure to come back if you asked them to come at another time--not something that happens often when you ask them in your sleep to come back later. I was very impressed with staff.
I was also incredibly impressed with the laundry facilities. I have never seen a hotel laundry like this--and I have stayed in hundreds of hotels. There was a large, well-lit, clean room with SIX dryers and THREE washers. All were modern pieces and actually cleaned my laundry with one cycle! That never happens! It was also only $1 per cycle - again, never happens. I was so thrilled to not have to go to a laundromat and to have laundry facilities similar to home. Thank you!
Also a surprise - there was a REAL Starbucks inside, not just Starbucks coffee. I got a frappacino, which never happens when hotels say they have "Starbucks" - they just brew their coffee.
