I stayed here during the Miss West Virginia event this week. The 3 days I stayed here were very busy but I was able to relax in between all the activities because of some very nice features at this hotel. First off, the room was very comfy. I was able to regulate the temperature of the room, the beds were heavenly, the TV had lots of stations if I decided to watch. The fitness center was a particularly nice surprise, since so many hotels seem to add these as an after thought. This one had at least 8 late-model cardio machines (treadmills, bikes, eliiptical trainers). There was also a nice variety of weight machines, including my favorite ab cruncher! Some of the cardio machines face out the window with a nice view of the river. I had late lunches each day at the Regatta. The bar was fairly well stocked with a nice selection of wines, including by the glass, and I was not disappointed by the food. Whatever I ordered, salad, salmon, fries, burger, whatever; it was fresh and cooked just right. There is nothing more depressing than salmon cooked to hockey puck consistency, but I didn have that experience here, it was perfectly cooked. The hotel is within walking distance of the downtown area, where there are some nice boutiques, an excellent wine store, and even a toy store. Back in the room, the wireless Internet was fast and reliable. The staff was mostly friendly, but not overly helpful. I was obviously struggling with a heavy cart and the bellboy didn't offer to help me. Also, I guess I'm just used to hotels providing mini-fridges and microwaves these days, but they were not here at this hotel.... No biggie, but it would be nice to not have to depend on the restaurant for all your meals since there really isn't anything within a 20 minute walk. I usually bring my own yogurt or instant oatmeal when I travel, so I wasn't able to do that this time. Also.... Guests have to pay for coffee from the restaurant! And Im sorry, but those coffee pods.... Yuck. It would be nice to provide free coffee for guests. Other than those minor issues, this was a nice place to stay and I would definitely stay here again,
