We only stayed one night here and although the room was nice and the front desk clerk (Lauren) was awesome, the free hot breakfast is so sad and pathetic, it kills the deal.
We had a king room with a pull-out sofa. The bed was too firm for my tastes but had lots of pillows and nice bedding. If using the pull-out, I highly suggest that you bring extra bedding or the metal bars/springs in the sofa will make you feel like you've been in a kick-boxing match all night.
The A/C worked great. The sink area is outside of the bathroom, a plus when traveling with kids. Our room had a nice size mini-fridge, coffee maker, small microwave and flat-screen TV. Wi-fi is free and does not require a code. The walls are pretty thin, we could hear a baby crying next door throughout the night.
The free breakfast. Lord have mercy, where do I start?! Watered down fake OJ and apple juice, tiny (and I mean TINY), pastries, muffins and danishes. Greasy bacon, white bread only, biscuits, watery pepper gravy. No eggs, no yogurt, no fruit, no hot cocoa or tea. Instant grits, fake cheerios and fake frosted flakes. ONE waffle maker. ONE! Really? With 20+ people crowding into the breakfast area, they only have one waffle maker and 4 tables with chairs. Yes, just 4 tables. People were standing in the lobby and hallway holding a plate, trying to eat.
The fitness room has one treadmill, one elliptical machine and one stationary bike. The room is kept cold and has a great TV, but is very, very small. No ice machine on third floor, only on the ground floor.
Overall, for a one night stay, this is a good location, but at this price, not having an adequate breakfast spread or adequate seating kills the deal. We would NOT stay here again.
