This is a nice hotel. Their are a couple of problems though. The pillows are the size of postage stamps even on my king size bed. There is only 1 luggage cart and no one to help you. I went alone and was not aware of the shuttle or I would definitely have wanted to take advantage of that instead of paying to park and driving alone to Tiger Stadium. The breakfast buffet is okay not much selection but decent food. It is right on the interstate so ask for a room in the back. Mine was right behind the elevator and I thought that would be a problem but it was only noisy in the bathroom. The staff however leaves a lot to be desired. I asked for a luggage cart when I got ready to check out and was told by I think his name was Anwar that there was only one. He really didn't seem interested at all in me having to make 3 trips to get all my stuff out and I even dropped my alcohol as I walked through the door which I know he heard but never even attempted to help me pick up my belongings. I just dropped everything and started coming back picking up more things that were just lying there. When I went to give him my room card I said something about the luggage cart and I don't know if he understood me but he just said being used. When I checked in I asked for the best way to get to Tiger Stadium and was nonchalantly told to just follow the road. Now I am an Honors member and I travel quite a bit to concerts and usually the staff at places that I stay goes out of their way especially if you see that person is traveling by themselves to help. I had even called earlier in the morning and told them if they needed my double room to give it to someone because I was coming alone. Don't think I'll be staying here next year unless somethings change.
