“Conference hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Older hotel but well kept up. The positive are a very helpful staff and a nice lobby area. Good set up for conferences with outstanding buffet for lunch. The negatives are: difficult to find at night, no free wifi and expensive per day charge ( a leftover anachronism?)' and older rooms which could do with a makeover and update. The shuttle service to local restaurants is a very welcome service. Although I would not chose for a romantic or family get away, as a set up for conferences it is good.

The rooms are actually quite nice in layout for families. But they do not offer wi fi unless you pay $13 per night and refrigerators must be requested and paid for at $15 per stay. These are typical amenities at 2.5 star hotels so it makes no sense for a 3.5 star not to have them. They also pre auth your card for incidentals at a much higher rate than normal...$50 PER NIGHT. They apparently take in schools and other young adult trips but do not separate them from other guests and do not enforce decent behavior. I can not sleep due to noise although I've reported to the desk several times. I also have a sick child who has been woken twice, once by several people screaming very obscene words and running up and down the hall. Not a family hotel. It's geared more towards business travelers and large (obnoxious) groups.

Room was comfortable and spacious. Evidently they forgot to vacumn carpet as I kept picking up pieces of broken pretzel and throwing in trash. Bar area is really nice. Food was OK not great but numerous resturants in area. Entrance to hotel is actually on back side of parking lot.

This is a hotel that does the job of providing a reasonable standard of accommodation but there is not much else to recommend it. Seemed to cater for business and meeting delegates and when I stayed was full of large school groups. Public areas are comfortable and the bar food menu was very tasty. Generally the hotel lacked any real service " vibe". People were just doing their job. This was particularlly evident at breakfast where some of the staff seemed grumpy at best. The doorman was the exception to this he was positive, helpful and happy to go the extra mile. the hotel does have a shuttle that will take guests to the small shopping area nearby. Generally adequate but nothing special.

This hotel offers consistent quality and staff is always ready to help with any issues. Rooms are older but well designed. The NOVA bar and grill, located in the lobby is one of the areas that could use some attention, food was not particularly good and bartender, though friendly, lacked communication skills and command of the english language. Location of the hotel is excellent, plenty of restaraunts, cafes, shopping, etc.

I had a comfortable stay. My room, on the 14th floor, was laid out like a little mini-suite. There was an island in the middle of the room that separated the sleeping area from the sitting area, which included a desk, a sofa and an ottoman. The tv was on a pivot stand so it could be viewed from the sofa or the bed. The room was clean and comfortable, though I was surprised at how thin the walls were. I could hear the neighbors laughing and talking. Maybe they were being especially loud, but I was surprised. The lobby was very pretty, but I thought the hallways to the rooms had an institutional feel. Unfortunate choice of wallpaper that made it feel like cinderblock walls. The food in the restaurant wasn't bad, but I didn't appreciate being consigned to the bar to eat, just because I was dining alone.
