I just spent over 2 months at this place and really like it. The rooms are almost like small apartments. Here are some good points:
-The rooms are quite nice and well maintained. All the furniture and furnishings seem pretty new.
-The bed is very comfortable.
-Both the bedroom and living room each have their own nice big flat screen TV.
-Each room has a real kitchen with full size fridge (but no oven).
-The staff is good for the most part, although not the most professional at times.
-The free breakfast is pretty good with different hot choices each day, and the free dinner Mon-Thurs is also reasonably good.
-The maid service is also pretty decent.
A few negatives to note:
-A few weeks ago there was about a dozen cars vandalized in the back. For whatever reason this place has no cameras around the perimeter, so avoid parking in the back if possible.
-The quality of the dinners has gone steadily down over time. I stayed here about a year ago and it was very good, but now it is much cheaper choices and lower quality ingredients. It is still edible most nights, but occasionally it is so bad that I go down the street to TGIF instead.
-The walls are very thin, so if you have 'active' neighbors you will hear every detail. (at times this might be considered by some as a positive)
-While the TV's are really nice, the choice of TV channels is horrible.
-The elevators suck...they are really slow.
So while this place has a few bad points, it really is very good overall. I will definitely stay here again in the future.
One last piece of advice: Some rooms are much smaller than others, so if you get one with a bedroom that barely fits the bed, ask to move to something bigger.
