Arriving early I found out I had a bit of a wait for my room. I had lunch in the restaurant. Food there was basic but tasty and reasonably priced. Especially the breakfast buffet. Great deal. Then they stored my baggage while I went for a walk in the area. A couple of malls close buy 1 a quick C Train ride away the other you could walk to in about 10 minutes. Once I got into my room I found it to be very nice and clean. No problems found and especially after ready abour problems on here. I had booked a car for the next day and got a ride to pick it up from the hotel shuttle. Once with a car I found getting out to head East or west was quite easy from my location. Front desk staff was friendly and helpfull with directions and recomendations. And dining room evening staff was very helpfull. Especially One girl in the evenings whose name escapes me but it started with D. She was Pleasant to talk to very friendly and very quick with the service as well.
One down thing to keep in mind the menu choices are very plain and simple. Room service I didn't try but found out they are in the middle of changing that menu, I still had an old room service menu and didn't know or see the new one.
You are only a 5 minute drive to the Zoo and 10 minutes from downtown. Both direct routes so easy to find and get to. I would highly recommend the Zoo.
All in all I would give this hotel a 31/2 out of 5 for a rating moving to a 4 with an improved menu selection.
And would gladly stay here again. And recommend it to anyone.
Also never did try the pool but it wasn't large but was indoors and looked inviting.
