First impressions were great. Staff support, responsiveness at check in was flawless. Bar staff very good too. Rather limited on the wines and beers but certainly acceptable for a hotel in this location all in all. We did however make the point to stop and find something far closer to our preferences during our stay.
The hotel was undergoing some updates which would be a part of my downgrade so once those are done, much will be new again. However it doesn't appear the place is getting a complete makeover which would leave it in a bit of a mix. Carpets for example need replacement but at the visit didn't appear to be on the list of things to do. As a small group we compared notes and found that a few of us had rooms with a faint mildew smell from the AC unit. We were going to ask to move to different rooms but decided against due to the hassle factor of it. The other question we couldn't answer which stopped us was as there is a rennovation going on, will the other rooms be actually as bad with the mildew or maybe worse. If so, there's no gain.
Breakfast was a good traditional american-style affair except the waffle iron we observed didn't seem to work quite right - watched several people struggle with it undercooking and thus ruining the waffle. This left the staff to have to clean it off again. The breakfast while good was not much varied on different days.
The workout room had the basics but not much more. No stationary bike either so if you don't like treadmills, you are out of luck.
