Date of stay: November 2, 2012-1 night in Room #242
This was our second stay at this location, and this time was even better. (see prior review for more details) When I checked in, I asked if Melissa Golub was there. She came out from her office, and we shook hands. I thanked her for her personal email responses, and she thanked me for returning. The room had the exact same layout as our prior room #235 and was perfect with no issues. There was a note from the General Manager, Joe Ruiz, along with 2 bottles of water in the room. We showered and changed for the fancy party for which we were in town. We stopped by the bar and had our complimentary drinks that I receive because of my Platinum status. Doug, the friendly, graduate school shuttle driver, took us to our party and gave us a card in case we needed a ride back from his co-worker, but we received one from someone at the party so not necessary. Good luck, Doug, in your future accounting career! The bed was comfortable, and provided a great night’s sleep. Breakfast, included in my rate, was good the next morning. They made me 3 eggs over medium as they did the prior time. I had bacon and sausage sandwiches as well plus coffee. We checked out, and all was good. I had a prepaid rate so there were no additional charges. The lady at the desk thanked us and we said we would be back.
