I really liked this place! The Rooms as you may know are all Suites; a bedroom and a living room space, with a flat screen TV in each. Good Coffee Maker and small Refrigerator. Nice bathroom, luxury granite-type counter tops and TONS of towels.
The Atrium is beautiful, all very tropical with live plants and a little river with bridges to cross to get from here to there. So cool! Nice indoor pool area with Jacuzzi, and a free breakfast every morning. As someone else mentioned, it is geared toward the business traveler I would say. And I advise it! We had Meetings every day last week in the Meeting area, and each day, in addition to the Free Breakfast, in the common area of the Meeting Rooms they supply a buffet of breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, coffees, teas, ice water with fruit (in it!), all kinds of refrigerated drinks, and a hot item. But wait, later after lunch they renew the tables with a lunch snack buffet!! This was equally amazing and includes chocolates and chips and dips and veggies, as well as another hot item like meatballs or wings. I ate like a crazy woman! EVERY day. And this is AFTER the free Breakfast Buffet, the catered Lunch, and the available Hot Coffee and Tea selections at night before bed. We didn't do the Happy Hour, but that includes MORE free food AND drinks! Nice.
The beds and linens were very comfortable which is perfect after eating the entire day away (oh yes, and being in meetings).
Nice Place. Friendly Staff. Ample (free) Private Parking Lot. Good Location. Happy (and a little heavier) Guest.
