First impressions of this location: The property is nestled back near office buildings. Parking lot smallish, no drive up area to unload, only two 10 mins spaces for this. Construction workers were parked in one of those - inconvenient. The rest were handicapped spaces.
We called ahead and were allowed to check in early and given a first floor room. However, the shortest route to get to this room from lobby was to go outside and circle around the pool, sports play area, etc. If you didn't take this shortcut the only other way was thru the long, long neverending corridors with luggage etc. Thankfully, two nice housekeepers helped us out. This was a rainy, chilly long weekend and I didn't appreciate having to go out in the elements to get to my room. If the weather was better and pool open we would have had to march thru other guests using the pool/ play area. Poor design. When we asked front desk staff to switch rooms we were told this was the only room available for early check-in.
We checked in on a weekday. Be aware that office workers from nearby buildings were walking and sitting outside during lunch so close blinds on for security if facing.
This is an older hotel. - furniture shows it. The free breakfast was basic. I will not seek out this hotel again.
