I've stayed in this area for business for a number of months, and this has been my favorite hotel so far. I made the reservation with my HHonors number and when we arrived they gave us 2 warm cookies and upgraded us to a really nice 2 room suite. The suite was huge, with a bathroom bigger than most standard-sized hotel rooms. There was a shower and separate whirlpool tub, all marble. We also received access to the pantry on another floor, which had complimentary snacks and drinks that you could get anytime.
Breakfast was delicious, the chef making the omelettes was very friendly and did a great job (he even cooked the veggies before adding the eggs). I probably wouldn't pay the $16 and change for it, but we had breakfast vouchers so for free we couldn't have asked for more!
The staff here was great - some of the friendliest I've seen. Plus they gave us more warm cookies when we checked out!
The only downside here is the $20 parking, which is pretty much your only option. I hate having to pay for parking. I also hate being forced to use valet parking. Both are the case here, unfortunately, but the hotel and staff were too great for me to take it down a point in the rating.
