I spent a week at this hotel while I was in town for business, and overall, I had a very pleasant stay. All of the staff I interacted with were very friendly and accomodating. My room was very clean and comfortable, and there are some great ammenities at the hotel that can't be beat. The fitness center was small and basic, but still a great feature. Wi-Fi was super slow, but at least they offer it. The lobby area was great...it was very inviting with lots of comfortable seating and an ample amount of outlets to plug-in laptops and other electronic devices. There is a bistro and small bar in the lobby. I enjoyed a drink at the bar one night, and grabbed coffee at the bistro every morning during my stay. The bistro serves "grab and go" type meals and snacks, as well as menu items that are made to order. My only complaint about this hotel is the parking situation and traffic situation. The hotel charges guests $16 per day to park a car in their parking lot. It's clearly just a way to nickel and dime guests. None of the other hotels do this. The hotel was full during my stay, so parking was limited in the lot. But, there is a parking garage connected to the hotel, and there seemed to always be spaces available in there. You have to have a ticket (seperate from your room key) to get in and out of the parking lot gates, and that was a headache. When you are coming and going from the hotel multiple times per day like I was, it gets rather tedious to have to keep track of a paper ticket. One night as I attempted to enter the gate into the lot, I put my ticket in the machine and it jammed (apparently this happens often). Needless to say, the gate wouldn't open, and no one could get into the parking lot until someone fixed it. As far as traffic goes, my best advice is to avoid Hotel Circle during commute hours if you can. The traffic situation is absolutely rediculous. For some reason, traffic seemed worse during the evening hours than during the morning hours. From the time I exited the freeway on to Hotel Circle each evening, it literally took me 35 minutes to do half the loop of the circle and get to the hotel. This is not hotel's fault, but it is definitely something that might weigh heavily on my decision about whether or not to stay here again in the future.
