We regularly stay in Federick on our way to North Carolina. This year we went back to this hotel after having stayed at another nearby property for the last couple of years. One reason we have been away was that this property was undergoing renovations. The renovations are now complete and they look wonderful. The bistro/bar area is a nice change and lobby is very open and contemporary. They have also upgraded the outdoor patio with new wicker furniture and an open fire pit. We sat around in the evening and enjoyed the relatively seasonal weather. Staff were very courteous and helped my wife find the nearest Target. The rooms were nice and acceptable for a stay of only one night. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will undoubtedly visit again.
