Our family of four stayed one night at this well-maintained property. The landscaping was beautiful, the folks at the front desk were friendly, check-in was quick and easy, and the lobby was even nicer than the Embassy Suites in Alexandria, Virginia.
I love the excellent government rate/discount offered by this chain. It is much better than those offered by Hilton or Marriott. The Manager's Reception offered free wine/beer/mixed drinks at 5:30pm (and you could go back for another one), as well as snacks (crunchy veggies, hummus, chips). The lobby fountains were somewhat loud, making conversation a little difficult. Also, the lobby was unusually cold, for some reason.
The room was clean and typical of this chain. My only complaint about the rooms is that they offer double beds instead of queen beds.
The pool area was very, very warm for non-swimmers, but the pool was clean and well-maintained. The main entrance was not accessible the night we were there, but that was a minor hiccup.
Breakfast is another strong suit of this chain - you can get a made-to-order omelet and other hot foods from the chef, as well as a very good selection of other breakfast items in the breakfast area, as part of the price of your room. It is a nice gesture to tip both the breakfast chef and the bartender at the Manager's Reception, by the way.
Embassy Suites has become my favorite chain, despite the double beds. This was a very nice property, just down the road from Kentucky Horse Park, which we visited the next day.
