I stayed at this hotel for two nights - January 23rd and 24th. I chose this hotel based on the excellent experience that my husband and I had at their Phoenix location last November. True to form, this property lived up to my expectations.
I was in room 207 which is large and features a separate bedroom with a king bed and six pillows. I slept great so I check under the sheets and found I was sleeping on a "beautyrest" mattress. There are two TVs, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. A nice computer desk to write this review. The HVAC system was very comfortable but not noisy like some other hotels I have stayed at.
This property has beautiful grounds which includes a pool and hot tub. The staff lays out towels on the lounges so you don't have to go looking for a towel. There is a fitness center and business center that I used to print out our boarding passes for our return flight. The lobby has a nice selection of daily newspapers including the Wall Street Journal. There is a library of books and DVDs as well as bicycles for the complementary use of the guests. The free wifi had a good level of performance. The breakfast room has gone way beyond the typical coffee and donuts that most properties offer. The Windmill breakfast includes; pastries, bread and English muffins for toast, sausage, bacon, eggs, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juices and waffles. You can eat in the breakfast room, in the lobby or tables outside.
I really liked the location. First, it is located at St Philips Plaza with PF Changs and Vivace Italian restaurant located nearby. See my restaurant review of Vivace. Second, the hotel is located on North Campbell Avenue in a safe part of town. I had no fear of walking to dinner at night.
As I mentioned in previous reviews, the staff can either make or break the experience. The staff here must go to some kind of hospitality university because they do whatever they can to ensure the customer is satisfied. Diego at the front desk did an awesome job!
