I came to the best western once i heard the place had a history. Historical places have an appeal of somesort a character that newer buildings cant seem to fulfill. From the outside i could see the train statues and the architecture of what once stood a magnificant rail yard. When I walked inside there was so much to see, the original rails still in the flooring, the pictures on the walls of the trains and the workers, and a breakfst are that is like a passenger boarding center, this was not however part of the building originally since it was a paint and repair shop but it is a reconstructed model. The staff was very knowledgeble about the building, the history. and there was even a train museum on the other side so I could see what it used to look like. I was excited to see what the rooms looked like. I can still remember my room 211. This room is beautiful, I walked in and the room had a mini bar area, a huge california king bed and a living room area. There was even a picture of a train on the left side of the wall. The view even from the inside was a great view. The room very clean, the bed was amazing, looking plump and full and made me feel like i was sleeping on a cloud. The pillows too. I like the look of the four pillows we didnt sleep with all four, but for the look of the beds it had an appeal. I bugged the staff a bit w/ any questions that I had, but they were always so helpful and nice. I did have one noisey neighbor but I called the front desk gentleman and then the noise stopped. If you come here, you'll want to come back. They make you feel at home, they have the necessities needed and whatever they dont have they help you get, and make sure it gets done. The breakfast area is really tidy and has a wider variety than most continental breakfasts, plus it has an amazing woman named Ruth who really tries to get to know you,shes fast so helpful and so sweet, she has cards filling up both doors of the breakfast doors, from people of all over the united states. Upon check-out I had a question about my bill and eventhough it was busy one of the managers helped explain it to me. They gave me card and said to give them a call if i had any more questions and they would help. without a doubt I'll be back. One thing though they dont have a restaraunt on site but they do have over 20 different restaraunts that deliver and restaurants with in less than a mile all around. Its not in a bad location, its nice because its away from the craziness of the cities, not too far away, but far enough where you can sleep peaceful. I recommend this to all accomodations. Pool parties, birthday parties, banquest rooms for meetings and businesses, even people who want to stay for weeks at a time. I checked out their rates and they are amazing, best deal and the greatest relaxation on a vacation that i could ask for. (The photos I used were from my friends camera. unfortunately i dont have any from my room, but ill be sure to get some again when i go back.)
