This is a pretty standard, older Sheraton property. The lobby and bar/restaurant (complete with a Starbucks) have been updated fairly recently, so they feel a bit “fresher,” but generally this hotel’s age is starting to show. This is particularly true in the rooms which are functional enough, but definitely feel a bit long in the tooth. Carpet’s pretty worn and furniture/bathroom feels old and dated. The cable in my room was really crummy the first two days (like a signal that’s been “split” too many times) and on the 3rd day was completely out.
Internet was surprisingly speedy (by hotel standards) in my room.
Service throughout the hotel is friendly and efficient. Checkin was easy and quick. Ditto checkout – in fact, the manager saw me walking towards the desk, asked if I was checking out, and said he’d take care of it and send me a receipt via email. 2 seconds.
Didn’t eat at the restaurant – it was super mediocre on a previous stay, but the menu’s been refreshed and snacks I saw folks eating at the bar (wings, spinach dip, etc) certainly smelled good. Bar service was great. There was a woman bartender from the Ukraine there during my stay… can’t recall her name, but she was friendly, efficient and made a very good martini.
In short, its an aging property but most of its shortcomings are offset by solid service, which has steadily improved since earlier stays and my previous review.
Total side note: every time I’ve stayed at this property, its packed with Chinese tour groups. I have no idea what the heck there is in that area that’s attractive to Chinese tourists, and the curiosity is killing me…
