Booked hotel for a two night stay in Fort Wayne. I read alot of the reviews on Tripadvisor as I always do and knew that this would be an average to excellent stay, depending on your floor as I now know.
Hotel is in a very good location. Many restaurants and bars within walking distance or a short drive. They also have an onsite restaurant (did not try) and a Rum Runners (not open Mondays also did not try). The rooms are dated but clean and do have up dated electronics. Comfortable beds are always a plus. They have a great fitness facility with all up to date cardio equipment, free weights and machines. Pool area was attractive as well. The service at the front counter was great and informative about the area. Check in lobby had the look of a 4 star hotel.
Here is the part that I will say put a bit of a damper to my stay. I had a room in the tower which was no where near the lobby as you had to drive around to the convention part of the hotel to access the tower elevators. If you stay in the 5th or 6th floor you have access to the concierge room with a room key to also access the floors from the elevator. I was on the 4th floor which had no working ice or soda machine. 3rd floor had no working ice machine which means I had to try the 5th or 6th floor, and as mentioned you needed a key for the elevators. I tried the use the stairways and found I was able to get the the upper floors which I finally did find ice on the 6th floor.
I still give this a Very Good rating due to the still attractivness or the hotel, comfort of the rooms and the fitness facility. The other problems are a quick fix if they are attended to. If I had to I would stay here again.
