We recently had occasion to stay over at this hotel, prior to a very early morning flight. Though we live in-state, it's a hassle to have to leave early enough from our home in the south to make an early flight, so we decided to stay over. We usually stay at the HIE (which rooms are ~$30 cheaper, and which is thisclose to this hotel), but it was sold out.
The hotel is very nicely appointed and clean, anywhere I looked. There is no bell service, but there are carts so you can take your luggage to your room. There are parking lots all around the building, with secured doors (need your keycard at all times) to enter the building.
The few staff that I interacted with were very friendly and courteous. The room was spacious and pretty--if the linens and decor weren't new, they looked it. Our room had three doors--one exits to the inside hallway; one exits to the gallery around the indoor atrium, overlooking it. There was also a connecting door to the next room, should you need to have two adjacent rooms for your stay.
Free wifi in-room, with okay speeds.
We had a king bed with an array of pillows--two of the pillows had 'ribbons' wrapped around them to indicate whether they were soft or firm. An additional pillow and blanket were located on the shelf in the 'closet'. The provided ironing board was a bit flimsy, but I used it and the iron, and everything worked just fine.
Bathroom was typical and clean, with decent toiletries and towels...and a Keurig coffeemaker with an assortment of Green Mountain coffee pods and Twinings teabags. Also, non-dairy half-n-half, too!
The bed was okay--not the best hotel bed I've slept in, but far from the worst. It was made up with a quilt/comforter between two sheets, with no additional blanket on the bed.
We did eat dinner that evening in Boston's Restaurant, located in the hotel, and I'll post a separate review for it, but we enjoyed what we ate. I can't speak to the breakfast in-hotel, as we didn't partake.
In short, yes, stay here, whether you're in town for the night or a few days. They do have available secured parking, separate from the general hotel parking, if you wish to leave your car with them, while you are away. They have a complimentary shuttle to the airport, and there is a fee to leave your vehicle while you're away, I believe, but I don't know what it is, as we use another parking place down the road, when we fly.
