The hotel is overall very nice. The decor is classic. I love the sconces in the hallways, the hotel "feels" like it has class. The room was good, but not great. The restaurant was clean, but rarely had many people in it. We did not eat there. The pool and hot tub were great. The pond is great. The ducks are great. I can't believe that we're charging for parking in this area, but just anticipate it. The number of spaces provided for "Park it yourself" folks were limited.
Back to the room...overall, the room is pretty standard. Although there are some upscale features, it wasn't much different than the room you'd get at a super 8 or motel 6. Don't get me wrong, there are some nice features, but for the price, and the overall rating of the hotel, I just didn't see it. Bathroom was nice, there was no closet in my room, the ironing board was a small table top model, and worst of all, the AC buzzed. Not the hotel's fault, I didn't let them know. I'm sure they would have fixed it had I let them know. Beds were comfortable, but springy, and not unique in any way. Pillows were standard Hilton issue.
Overall, it's a great place. Nice location. BUT there are better values around the area. I would look around more to see what you can find. Traffic noise is an issue, but the airport wasn't as much as I thought it would be.
