“Nicely arranged suite, good breakfast; dodgy internet, smoking”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This hotel looks like it might have been an Embassy Suites at some point. The front room has a pull-out sofa, dining table and chairs, wet bar, fridge, and microwave. The bedroom has its own sink and a wardrobe. Add in the sink in the bathroom and you have three separate sinks, very convenient for five people getting ready for the day. The suites have a windowed front covered by drapes.

We were happy to find a hotel where all five of us could share a room: There was room in the front room for our blow up mattress.

The only odd thing about our non-smoking room was the smoky smell as you entered. The smell wasn't evident further back in the room, but just at the door. On our last night, we figured it out: Our room, 201, was right around the corner from the smoking rooms, and the smell was being blocked but absorbed by our drapes. If you don't want to be anywhere near smoke, you'll need to ask to move.

They provided at least a half-dozen wifi access points around the sprawling building, but internet access was spotty and inconsistent, regardless of which one you connected to.

Breakfast was ticketed. I was given a punch card for each person in our party. You show your card, and they scratch out the number of that day of the month. They will cook omelets and they have pancakes, bacon, sausage, and biscuits, but these are served to you. Fruit, coffee, juice, milk, cereal, soda, bagels, pastries, and yogurt are available for self-service. Breakfast is in one of the atriums, which is decorated like a Spanish plaza with a fountain in the middle.

The guest laundry has two washers and two dryers. You pay to use them, but I was given complimentary detergent and dryer sheets at the front desk.

My oldest son enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We would have liked to make use of the games -- ping pong, billiards, and foosball were all available -- but we were spending most of our time out of the hotel with relatives. I could imagine spending a day just relaxing in the hotel

We were pleased and impressed enough to book a hotel in the same chain at our next stop.

Room Tip: 201 is a non-smoking room but right around the corner from smoking rooms, so you may want to avoid i...

We only stayed one night. When we arrived 2:50, the rooms were not ready and were not ready at 3:00. The room was okay but needed to be updated. I think they are in the process of doing so. Yes, the staff was very pleasant, but it appeared that the hotel could be run more efficiently. The coffee was just lukeward; and if you added cream, it was cool. One staff member at breakfast - her name is Jo Ann - greeted each and every person as if you were a guest in her home. What a delight! I think that the hotel should upgrade the drinks served in the evening. We tried one and then opted to go to the bar!!

We stayed here on business for three nights. The staff was polite and helpful. Our room was clean and refreshed daily with a kitchen/bar area/sitting area with a breakfast table for four. Breakfast was made to order and generous as well as other items servered. Complementary drinks in the evening. There is also a restaurant at the hotel. The inside swimming pool was nice.

We stayed here for a conference. The staff was very polite and helpful. Our suite was clean and updated. Breakfast is generous and fresh, serving also hot foods. Complementary drinks in the evening. Only problems were the coffee dispensers in a cramped place making it hard for guests to access them quickly. Also, the air conditioning in the large meeting room didn't work during the crowded, long meeting, and the sound system and speakers didn't work correctly. However, the staff repaired all of these for the rest of the meetings. Ample parking.

Room Tip: Quiet in atrium farthest south. The central atrium has the pool and some games geared to children.T...

Stayed one night really enjoyed it. Found a good rate through a third party online and was surprised at the value. Free hot breakfast was great. Room layout was neat with separate living area and bedroom. Friendly service! No complaints!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. (April 12-13, 2013). We were looking for some place where we could not only be in town for our nephews wedding which was on the 13th but also celebrate our Anniversary which was the 14th.
Hands down the BEST place we have ever stayed for the price! We got far more room than we ever imagined. The layout of the hotel is like no other we have been to. At first I was worried that the "celebration" area outside our room was going to make us request a different room, but turned out not to be an issue at all.
The staff was friendly and polite, breakfast was a far better "continental breakfast" we have ever had anywhere else. The added bonus to staying here was actually being able to purchase their pillows! Seriously! I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to purchase pillows at the hotels I have stayed at but they did not have any for sale.
My husband and I will be staying here again.
