I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. I arrived a little before check-in, but the lady at the front desk allowed me to check-in. She also asked why I was in the area and I mentioned just to look around campus at Notre Dame. She immediately mentioned they offer public tours at 10am and 3pm. Since it was about 2pm when I checked in...she suggested I try the 3pm tour. She supplied a map of the location of the tour and other useful local information.
As far as the room goes..I had a one bedroom suite. The living area was separate from the bedroom and there was a door that actually would allow it to be totally separated out. There was a pull-out couch in the living room as well as a flat screen tv and then also the kitchen area which included a stove, microwave, fridge, etc. The bedroom was good size and also had a flat screen on the wall.
The hotel was a short drive to campus (10 minutes maybe) and also close to shopping and restaurants. Couldn't ask for a more convenient location.
My only small complaint is the $250 deposit on the room. They place a hold on your credit card until it is verified no damage was done to the room. This is done for protection for the hotel as I am sure there have been room parties during Notre Dame game weekends and probably damage done! Either way...just a small inconvenience for such a great hotel. I also really liked the sports theme and the lobby area was great. I wasn't there on a game weekend...but I can imagine it is a great atmosphere.
