Came here after leaving another hotel local to the area (the other hotel was like something out of a horror movie). After such a bad experience at the previous hotel, getting to stay somewhere like this really lifted my spirits. Unlike the previous hotel, this room had been cleaned...thoroughly. Sheets were crisp and white, the room even smelled amazing. Ample space in the room I had, nice shower accessories as well (which I felt was mandatory after the last place). Breakfast is provided as a mini-buffet downstairs and you will find that the selection is very nice, you will walk away full and they have something for everyone. There is even a nifty pancake making machine, although I didn't use it myself.
The downsides are mentioned to keep the review honest, but they were very minor in my opinion and should not be a reason anyone would not stay here. Location is somewhat blah, there is nothing of particular interest immediately surrounding the hotel, but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance if you don't feel like driving. I am also pretty snobby about my coffee, and I really didn't enjoy the in room coffee (I didn't expect to) or the coffee served with breakfast (I had hoped it would be better). The easy remedy was that there were at least two coffee shops in fair walking distance, the furthest was about 4 blocks if I recall correctly.
Last thing I can say about the location is that the staff were super friendly and pleasant. All in all I had a great experience here and would gladly visit again.
