I stayed here for one night back in July. I arrived about 2 hours before check-in time and was promptly greeted by an amazing front desk staff and quickly put into a room. The front desk attendant gave me no trouble about arriving at 1pm. They also upgraded me to what they called the "club level", which allowed access to breakfast in the mornings, such a nice touch. The room was great, very clean and had a TV in the bathroom mirror.
That night I met up with friends at the Fox and Hound Pub which is located in the middle of North Hills. It literally took me 4 minutes to walk out of my room, through the lobby and about one block to to the bar. If I had time to see a movie, I could have walked right next door.
Overall: Great location, friendly staff, amazing property with up-to-date rooms.
