We booked a last minute stay at this hotel because our favorite hotel was full. As an alternate, it served its purpose, but we will stay at our preferred hotel (Hampton Suites) whenever possible.
This hotel gets very high marks for having very comfortable beds. However, the rooms are fairly cramped; and we missed having a refrigerator in the room. (There is room in the cabinets for a small fridge, so I don't know why they don't put the fridge in the room).
Our bathtub was slow to drain and we had some problems with the toilets.
The restaurant next to the lobby was awful. I had a late night cocktail at the bar and for the life of me, the bartender ignored me and I finally left some money on the bar as I could not close out my bill. (I hope it was enough money.) In the morning, we went to breakfast. My wife and I were told there was only a buffet. When my son went to breakfast a little later, he ordered off a menu! But then, his food took forever to come out from the kitchen. When it finally came, it was not what he ordered. They comped his breakfast, as we had to leave and had no more time to wait.
I did notice that some people received the breakfast buffet as part of their room rate. Our's was not included.
