I've stayed in various HGIs around the country, some are better than others but nonetheless I have a certain level of expectation w regards to the HGI brand. This one met that: clean, inviting, welcoming staff. Local area has lots of stuff for retail and food, so no worries there.
So the above and beyond experience: breakfast on weekends starts at 7 (usually 6a) but I was leaving well before then. I checked in night before, asked clerk if there was a take away breakfast option since I would not be around to take advantage of my free bfast ticket (diamond member). Clerk left note for morning chef if he could put together a cold plate for take away. This morning: chef did all his prep in anticipation of my arrival bc of the note, made me a great omelette and packed it up to go. In short, above and beyond and greatly appreciated.
Only con: room heater apparently has only on or off, no low med or high. As a result, when it's on the noise from it blowing can be pretty disruptive. As in, raise volume of TV loud. I'm a heavy sleeper and was still awoke by that whenever it would turn on. Yes I could have turned it off, but it was cold outside and I could feel it seeping through some leak in the window.More
