Simply put - had a nice relaxing time. We just wanted to casually explore the area and Poughkeepsie and found a good deal through Priceline.
Friendly Staff: the front desk staff were very friendly. we liked how they were very pleasant and approachable to talk to. We actually arrived a bit early but had no problems checking in early which we appreciated. these things can make a difference in making impressions to a guest.
Rooms are great - 1 bedroom suite gives a nice homey/relaxing feeling than just a small hotel room. Full kitchen/fridge/microwave, etc. living room space separate from the bedroom. the suite was definitely our favorite part.
Gym - 3 treadmills and 1 elliptical. not huge but sufficient
Laundry room - 3 washing machine (1 was out of order) and 6 dryers. 2 bucks each. liked the convenience of being able to wash your clothes on site.
Location: was not exciting but only a few blocks to the main street of Fishkill and Poughkeepsie is up on Route 9 about 20-30 min away. Walmart across the street - if you like that sort of convenience like us, it was a plus for us.
Was really on the fence about rating it 5 out of 5 but it had a few
toiletries: they had wall mounted dispensers for soap, shampoo, lotion (which was fine) as well as Hyatt hotel-mini shampoo/conditioner/lotions. However our Hyatt lotion tube was 80% EMPTY.. so I guess the cleaning lady thought they weren't used by the former guests and left it there.. not cool. We ended up using the lotion in the big pump bottle.
weekend crowd at breakfast - breakfast ends around 10 but afterwards, it's like a storm hit the breakfast room.. not their fault but a bit intimidating and stressful when you just want to get your toast.
Lots of kids - wanted to go to the pool but everytime we checked, it was filled with families/kids so not very relaxing for a couple
location: not the most exciting area but right off of the highway so convenient in that respect.
