My company sends me to this area for training sessions, so I must have spent about 20 nights at this hotel in recent months.
I've been in several rooms, but they were all identical. It's kind of an average business hotel with some nice touches. Beds are comfortable, television is good, bathroom ok. Good water pressure. There is heating and airconditioning you can control yourself, but it's difficult to get the perfect temperature. It's always too hot or too cold.
The lobby is pleasant with comfortable seating around a working fireplace which is very nice. Free Wall Street Journal and USA Today newspapers. There's a small gym with various machines. I'm not really into gyms, but my co-workers seem happy with it. The pool is clean and attractive. It can be very nice to relax there at times when there aren't a loud group of young people horsing around. The indoor pool area is kept warm in winter, so swimming at that time is comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is included in my company's deal, so I don't know much about the pricing. Two very pleasant women pour coffee and juice as soon as you are seated. The buffet is generally well stocked, but the highlight is the self service round waffle maker which is very easy to use. When I know I'm coming back to this hotel, those waffles are what I look forward to with most anticipation.
If you don't have a car in this area, you have few options. It is very inconvenient that the restaurant at the hotel does not serve dinner. There is only a refrigerator case with a few sad looking salads and sandwiches as well as frozen foods that you can prepare yourself with a microwave. Pretty sad options. If you ask for anything else, you'll be offered delivery menus for a few nearby greasy spoons that will deliver to your room.
HOT TIP: I eventually discovered the only walkable decent restaurant that can be reached from the hotel - The New York Steakhouse at the nearby Doubletree Hotel. They serve good meat, chicken, fish, some Italian dishes in very pleasant surroundings. You can have a large meal or just a sandwich. There is also a bar there.
You can reach the steakhouse on foot in less than ten minutes. One of the people at the front desk can point you in the direction to walk there.
The hotel has shuttle service, but I never found it useful in the evening. It ends at a certain time which would make an evening out very rushed.
