The SHS in Huntsville is one of the newest properties and is very much like IHG's Hotel Indigo in that is has excellent lighting, light airy rooms and very 'modernesque' furnishings. Considering they are one of the few descent hotels in HSV that accept Govt per diem I suspect they will be very popular. But a couple of minor things kept it from being a great hotel. First is the towels - where did they come from, the Dollar Store? I mean come on, LQ has better towels. Second was the a/c, while great and I love being able to control the fan, it blows right at your head when you are sleeping - not a good idea. Third was that to me the bed was hard, IHG's new beds are way better, but my companions thought the bed was okay. Decide for yourself. Lastly, all the other per diem hotels offer a manager's reception, at least to the frequent stayers, SHS charges $5.50-6.50 each for beer. WOW, I can go to a high dollar restaurant on BridgeStreet for that. Oh and I might should mention there is no hot tub and I am pretty sure the pool will be shaded after 1 or so but not a huge deal.
On the positive side again, the WiFi does not require you to stand on one foot while patting your back side with your left hand. It was painless and easy - how refreshing!!! Take note other hotels! The large LCD TV was nice and there is an iHome iPhone clock/docking station for the iPlanet ones amongst you. The walk in shower (no tub) is nice as are the huge windows to the room.
Bottom line, yes I will stay here again. I just hope they get better towels and fix the a/v to not blow on my head.
