First off I should explain that I'm pretty fussy about the hotels I choose. Cleanliness is very important to me. I visit hotel review websites and get as much information as I can before I make my decision.
I just got back from a Friday night stay with my two nieces (ages 9 and 11). I chose this property because I had previously stayed at a Courtyard and really enjoyed that experience. I also love the fact that this hotel is completely non-smoking and the security feature of not being able to access sidedoor/backdoor hotel entrances without your room key. Since this night out was a birthday gift for one of the nieces, I wanted a hotel with an indoor pool that she and her sister could enjoy. They were really excited to find that the pool area included a waterslide. There were two lifeguards on duty while we were there.
I reserved the 2 queen bed room from the Marriott website and we did not run into any problems with the reservation. The woman who checked us in was very friendly. Our room on the 5th floor was excellent! It smelled wonderful and was really clean. It included a mini fridge and coffee maker, which is always a bonus in my opinion. And I can't say enough about the wonderful lighting (non-sufficient lighting has always been a pet peeve of mine!). The room included a flat screen television, an iron/ironing board, hair dryer and a nice sized bathroom. The vending machine on our floor was sold out of most of its beverages so we purchased our drinks and snacks in the lobby "Market" connected to the check-in counter. Surprisingly, the prices weren't outrageous and I was able to charge them to my room.
We stayed on the back end of the hotel which has a view of the industrial area and the city lights at night - so don't book here if it's a spectacular view you're looking for!
We had dinner at an Applebee's which is just a walk across the parking lot from the hotel. There is also a Casey's and a Tim Horton's/Wendy's in the same area. I really can't comment on the quality of the food available at the hotel since we passed on the over-priced breakfast that was offered in the hotel lobby area and opted for Tim Horton's instead. (I believe the check-in clerk told us it would be $12.95 for buffet and $8.95 for continental).
Now for the negative ... it was approximately midnight when the hotel fire alarm woke us from our sleep. We scrambled out of our room and headed for the nearest staircase. Outside we gathered with the rest of the hotel visitors for about a half hour until the crowd headed back into the lobby. My only complaint about this visit is was how this particular situation was handled. There were a lot of children who were scared and looking for answers from the adults. Unfortunately, we weren't given many details except for the fact that the non-fire related "incident" that involved a hallway fire extinguisher had occured on the 3rd floor and those guests would have to gather their belongings and be relocated on different floors. The rest of us were allowed to return to our rooms. I felt that the manager should have given us more details as to what had happened even if it was limited due to an investigation. When we checked out later that morning, the clerk was still not able to tell us exactly what had happened but that hotel security cameras were being looked at etc.
With the exception of the night's interruption/disturbance, we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and I would strongly recommend it to anyone.
