I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years as I travel to the area for business. It had been more than a year since last visit, and unfortunately the upkeep of the hotel seems to be lacking. Rooms are large, bathroom has nice granite vanity, but the bottom of my tub looked disgusting as there was a lot of dirt embedded in the rough textured surface. No way anyone would take a bath in there, I hesitated to even take a shower! Another pet peeve of mine-- the coffemaker and supplies are in the bathroom. All you need to do is watch 20/20 or read what happens in the bathroom when the toilet is flushed and you will never ever drink anything out of a coffee pot stored in a bathroom. Great huge flat screen tv-- but no channels available in HD. I don't understand why a hotel has one without the other. Non-HD doesn't look very good on a big HD screen.
Breakfast was ok, heavy on sweets & carbs--cinnamon rolls, danish, cereal, pancakes,etc. Eggs were usual mass produced scrambled variety.
The parking lot was very very dark. Co-workers and I walked to the excellent Cafe Pont across the way for dinner, and if I had not been in a group I would have been very apprehensive.
