I stayed here once before when it was the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel, just over two years ago and the change is tremendous! I travel for a living, and I need to have a good feeling when I walk into any hotel I stay in.
The staff is excellent: professional and courteous. They reflect the attitudes of thier guests very well; for those guests who are open and friendly they reciprocate, and those who are reserved and aloof they tone it down to ensure that everyone is comfortable.
I've also seen the management evict someone who was yelling and screaming in the lobby and disturbing breakfast for everyone else. In all my time travelling I have rarely seen such decicive action taken to protect me, a paying client for the disturbances caused by others. Most hotels capitulate the moment the first profanities are uttered and then have to credit me for the disturbances thier other guests have caused.
I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
An excellent place to stay!
