I stayed here while visiting my son who lives nearby. I like this line better than Hyatt Place. I reserved a king room for $80/night for three nights and was upgraded to a studio suite overlooking the front of the hotel (Hyatt Passport member). There was a lot of construction around the hotel but the noise wasn't too bad inside the room so good soundproofing. The location was very convenient for me but I didn't have to drive anywhere. There's a Fresh & Easy grocery next door and several good casual dining eateries across the parking lot.
All the staff I encountered were very friendly. I was able to check in about noon and the front desk clerk walked me into the lobby to explain where everything was. There's a business center with four brand new Dell computers (they were being installed when I checked in), chairs in the lobby, a bar with billiard table, and breakfast area with lots of seating. Outside was a fire pit with comfortable chairs, and a small pool. I did use the pool for a couple of hours and appreciated the large towels and outside showers.
The room itself was comfortable, with a king bed, desk area with large flat screen TV, L-shaped sofas, very well equipped kitchenette (more than enough equipment to make meals) with full size refrigerator, sink area with light up make up mirror, and walk in shower and toilet room. Bars of face and bath soap were provided, along with pump bottles of soap and lotion by the sink, and bath gel and shampoo/conditioner in the shower. Only two things were missing that would have been appreciated - dining table, and full length mirror. Apparently only some of the rooms have mirrors. I assume bedroom rather than studio suites would have tables but don't know. The wifi in the room worked fine.
The breakfast buffet included made to order omelets, hot trays with eggs, meat, potatoes, and french toast or pancakes. There was also dry cereal, breads and muffins to toast, fruit salad, yogurt, soy milk, and instant oatmeal with toppings. Also fresh juice and coffee. It was similar to a Hampton buffet - more hot dishes but less pastries, better than Hyatt Place buffets, but not as good as Residence Inn, Homewood Suites, or Embassy Suites.
With a good rate, I would be happy to stay here again.
