After staying at a dreary hotel across the street, I was happy to be staying in a fresh, clean and bright room. The front desk staff were both very friendly and willing to help. The hallway to the room was very clean, fresh smelling and inviting. Once I opened the door to the room, I was happy to see nice furniture, a flat screen tv and a very comfortable, clean bed. The decor of the room featured neutral, but warm and bright colors and had a very airy feel.
The shower had great water pressure, but the water was very soft (which wasn't a big deal). The sink bowl had a hairline crack in it, but the counter was spacious and appeared to be granite or some other high end surface.
I checked out the pool and gym. The gym looked well appointed and the pool has an adjacent shower, which they ask you to use before getting in the pool. The only gripe is that the water pressure in the poolside shower is nil. The pool itself was a nice size for playing or even swimming laps.
My experience at this hotel ranks it near the top for its price point. It delivers a great value and has the feel of a higher-end property.
