It truly has a lot to do with the staff, coupled with a new renovation and you have a Fantastic hotel. The hotel staff was amazing accommodating and quick service. Our room was great. We wanted a lower floor and opted for early arrival and took the 2 double beds w/ disability features. We had no problem with this as it gave us more space to be honest. Room decor was fresh and new. The air climate was perfect. It had all the accommodations we were looking for. We were especially thrilled to see the lobby's new concept in decor and service items (a Starbucks, a small grocery refrigerated section, and homemake food service with waiters, in a walk up service counter. My husband and I travel a lot throughout the US and abroad. We felt like this was a little boutique hotel in NYC. Loved it so much with its rich orange POP decor and sleek furnishings. Loved the banquette seating I believe there were 2 w/ their own TV to watch... giving a little privacy when you sit there. The rest of the lobby has a large screen TV, comfy chairs, computers, a bar seating for Ipods and phones. The Starbucks coffee station and attendents were great. We had only breakfast here with a small amt charge. DELICIOUS and lots of it. The pool was enough to relax not a big deal within the interior of the hotel. A small workout room but enough. Our purpose was to be able to get to the neighborhood hospital quickly and also to Congress street. All within hwy or neighborhood driving of 15 mins taking the longer inside roads route. 7 mins to the hospital. 10 mins to Congress via highway. I don't usually stay in the Arboretum area but around the corner from the hotel is a wonderful string of strip malls: including your Target and Walmart close by. 5 stars for a small version of the Marriott and that got this one RIGHT. If the staff continues to be accommodating, I'd say forget downtown high dollar hotels w/ parking fees and crowded streets. Go for a little more relaxing traffic area and go to check out this wonderful surprise we found online. LOVED IT truly did. I do not work for the hotel nor know anyone who does. I really think this is a diamond hotel. Check it out.
