I just recently stayed here over the weekend for a half business half leisure type deal. It was wonderful! I did NOT want to check out. Okay so the parking is free (plus), the lobby was very well decorated and warm/inviting, just like the front desk staff. I stayed in a guest room on the 5th floor with a King bed. Sooo nice. I don't know if they just recently remodeled or what but everything seemed brand new and sparkling clean. So there were three things that really made this hotel stand out from the rest for me.
and FREE wireless internet in my room!
Im super picky about hotel rooms and i was very impressed. The bed was super comfortable and the top spread did NOT make me wanna vomit. It was like nice and fresh smelling (you know that baked in the dryer smell). I usually pull off the top comforter and throw it on the floor in hotel rooms but I had no problems here.
The bathroom! This is a deal breaker for me it was ROOMY and the shower was big enough for 2 or even 3 people to shower, nice clean sliding doors. No gross shower curtain, plenty of counter space.
It didnt feel like a hotel room, it was like staying at a friends really nice house. Like a guest room at oprah's house or something.
The only drawback (if you can really call it that) is it was not listed on my nav system i had to put in the actual address and also if you are not familiar with the area then you'll need gps to find food. Theres nothing within walking distance, the hotel is located in some sort of like business district. I went to a taco bell that was about a mile or 2 away.
I'll probably stay here again for "me" time or to go swimming or something. Great hotel!
