This hotel focuses its attention on the business traveller, and I have nothing but good things to say. I've read some of the more negative reviews, and true, they don't have a gym, but a run in the residential area behind the hotel is beautiful. Car rental within a 5 minute walk, and public transit right outside the door. Free parking. Limo transportation to and from the airport, and to and from work every day that was on time without fail. My room was spotless. My reservation also said "king" and I had a room on the first floor with two queen beds and a window facing the parking lot, but who cares? It's business travel, and a single traveller takes up a tiny space in a king or a queen. It was way more than I needed.
I think their "happy hour" drinks and light snacks from 5-7 is brilliant. Almost everyone is there alone, so it gives opportunity for conversation. I really enjoyed my wine choices, and they had a huge variety of liqueurs and upper end beers.
Every single time I walked in the door the front desk staff looked up and smiled. Genuinely. I can't remember the last time I stayed at a hotel where they smiled at all. Bartender attempted to strike up a conversation with everyone. Friendly.
I didn't hear any outside noise at all while inside my room. Bed was comfy, and it felt like all the bedding and towels were brand new. Dingy room? I couldn't disagree more.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
