Since my last visit the hotel has undergone some refurbishments and changed its name from a Sheraton to a Renaissance. The refurbishments have brightened up the reception, restaurant, rooms and hallways. The rooms are fine, if a little dark. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were lumpy. The bathroom was compact with a full size tub and good toiletries. The whole hotel is satisfactory rather than great. The tv reception was poor on a few channels including the Travel Channel. There was no minibar, just a coffee maker.
The hotel lays on a shuttle service to nearby shopping malls and is close enough to walk to the Woodbridge Mall and several chain style restaurants.
My only other comment is about the staff. I have stayed at several 'chain' hotels recently where the service has been excellent. Here it seemed as though the staff just did their job - no more. Not many smiles. Perhaps this was because I stayed between Christmas and New Year when they might have been short-staffed.
All in all it is a satisfactory hotel.
