Myself and a friend stayed at this hotel on May 23rd, 2012. The location was the main reason we chose this, plus another friends' recommendation. We were pleasantly pleased with the "European like" flair to this hotel, but the real bonus was all of the employees. Everyone seemed to really enjoy their jobs, and were always helpful in all that we asked, or needed. The rooms were large and comfortable, with a lounging chair/ottoman, desk with a very comfortable chair to work at, and a nice bathroom area. The beds were to die for, very comfortable, clean, neat, and had a nice supply of lovely bedding. We slept like babies. Quiet, considering we had just came back from a Nickelback concert! We had no issues with excessive room or hallway noise. We missed the chance to use the pool and hot tub, but loved our stay so much, that we are coming back again in July with even more friends...we'll be sure to hit the water fun at that time.
We were disappointed that the lounge was not open at 10:30 PM when we came back on the FREE shuttle ...(yes people...direct delivery to the Target Center!)...but perhaps this was because it was on a Wed night? (we did not see the cookies and milk as afore mentioned in previous reviews...so again, perhaps the night or timing??)
I did suggested to the hotel for events in the area, they may want to make an exception and leave the lounge open till midnight on evenings as such. Many folks were coming back and complaining of this same issue, and I think the hotel would have benefited from some extra revenue.
We had breakfast in the historic restaraunt the next morning..pricey but worth it. Served with alot of care and pride, the meals were wonderful. I had the eggs benedict and my friend had the skillet that was offered. Both were excellent.Coffee strong and delicious...exactly what the Doctor ordered after Nickelback! (WINK!)
The parking lot was a bit of a nightmare...and was not included in our stay. It was an additional $7.00 to use it and I felt for the price they charged for rooms, this should be included for free. We were stressed in finding a spot, and finally got the last one available...so my advice would be, if you are going to stay here,,,get here early so you can park and use this lot....Would I stay again..? In a heart beat. Nice location and a great option for singles, families or couples. Enjoy!
