Our arrival at the hotel just happened to coincide with the arrival of a 50 passenger tour bus. Thankfully the staff was efficient and check-in was a breeze. My kids enjoyed the free popcorn in the lobby while waiting. Our room was nicely appointed with 2 queen beds, a fridge and microwave, and ample closet and drawer space. I just wish the bathroom would have been larger...not much counter space. We also had a great view of the arch and cathedral outside our window. Our kids took a swim in the 8th floor pool and we found it to be very clean and well maintained. We tried to hit the "kick back" happy hour but the line for the food was so long and slow moving that we decided to go elsewhere. The free breakfast was much less crowded when we arrived at 8am. Lots of choices and the food was tasty. The only thing that would have made the buffet better was if the food temperature was hotter. Our eggs were cold and the pancakes weren't much warmer. The staff worked hard to keep the serving trays filled and the dining area clean. Overall, we felt the hotel met our needs and was a comfortable place to stay. Can't beat the convenience to area attractions and easy access to freeways. A great hotel!
