Mostly very pleasant with a good sized suite. Kitchenette is minimally equipped - just a kettle and a microwave and a small amount of (questionably clean) dishes, etc. The bed was very comfortable.
I agree with a previous reviewer though about the HVAC and the TV remote. I couldn't fathom the instructions for the heating at all and I think my husband managed to set it through his magical ability to control machinery. However, this talent did not translate to getting the TV to work at all. The remote didn't work at all and there's no volume control on the TV set itself, so we had to watch on the second set in the bedroom to get our Olympics fix.
Overall, pretty, relaxing & quiet, but not quite good enough for the cost.
