This hotel, close to town, with many restaurants nearby, feels welcoming from the moment you pull in. Every staff member was pleasant without unctuousness. In the airy, well-arranged breakfast room, you'll find a better-than-average array of breakfast items. Sausage, eggs, yogurt, waffles, and assorted breads; dry cereals, fresh cut and whole fruits, and a tureen of steaming oatmeal with cinnamon sugar, a blend of nuts, and a mix of raisins and cranberries--all extra touches that add a lot. Excellent rooms, with practical wardrobes, movable hairdryers, tasteful interior decorating that marries the functional with the luxurious (such as towel cubbies and granite vanity tops). The desk manager on duty had a refrigerator delivered to my room at a moment's notice, remaining cheerful all the while. The room had blackout Roman shades and was well-insulated. The AC holds its temperature without that annoying, loud cycling that can interrupt peace and sleep. There are well-stocked vending machines on each of the hotel's four floors, an exercise room and a lovely outdoor pool with plenty of towels and attractive landscaping. Add plenty of genuine smiles, thoughtfulness, and good cheer, and you have one of the best hotels at any price. Oh, and the clientele seemed above the fray, as well.
