I had to travel to Lake Providence, Louisiana for business. In order to stay near the Jackson Airport I chose this location. It was very late in the evening before I was able to arrive. My first encounter was with hotel staff member Manervia over the telephone. I had to inform her of my extreme late check-in as well as inquire on great places to eat near the hotel. Manervia was pleasant and very helpful with my inquiry. First of all, the hotel is conveniently located right off of I-20. In walking and very short driving distance is plenty of dining choices and a big movie theater. The hotel was about an 8 minute drive from the airport.
Boy oh boy was I glad to step inside such a nice hotel after a long and busy day with travel and work. The hotel lobby was clean with a modern décor. I really liked the design of the sitting area for breakfast. This area has a double sided fireplace.
When I stepped into my room on the fourth floor I was happy to see the modern and spacious accommodations. My absolute favorite part of the entire room was the bed. The bed was SO DARN comfortable to sleep in that I had to literally drag myself out of bed the next morning. I did not want to get up. I felt as if I was laying in luxury with sheets and comforters that hugged me as well as pillows that cradled my head. Now you might be thinking that I'm making this up because I was tired. I assure you the comfort is worth shouting to the rooftops about.
I wish I could speak more about the breakfast, but I can't. Again I stayed in bed too long to grab food before it was picked over. I arrived at breakfast 15 minutes before they were to shut down so there was not much left. I did get to taste a little of the scrambled eggs _ and they were good. The hot cinnamon rolls were good too. That was basically all that was left for me to taste because I do not eat pork products.
I give this hotel 2 thumbs up!
