The Hotel is a Suites-style hotel, catering mainly to business travellers staying for longer periods, although during my stay I noted several families taking advantage of it's reasonable prices too.
The hotel is situated at the intersection of two major thoroughfares and a car must be considered essential, since there is nothing within walking distance. The hotel has a large parking lot.
Rooms were fully equipped and clean, although a little basic. My room was a bit tired, with several dings and bits of minor damage. The hotel has no restaurant, although a 'grab and go' breakfast was offered each morning, consisting of excellent coffee, with apples, energy bars and instant DIY porridge. Clearly the hotel expects guest to mainly self-cater, probably not unreasonably. Dining out needs a car.
There was no in-room guidance to local dining places, supermarkets, cinemas etc so access to the internet or a GPS is useful to find these. However I found that the front-desk staff were also helpful and good at giving directions.
Free Wi-Fi was offered as standard, which was good, if a little slow. A faster Wi-Fi service was available at a $3 per day premium. A few TV channels were offered, but the range was fairly uninspiring and I pitied the families with small chidren staying there. There was a gym (a bit cramped, but fairly well equipped) and a small outdoor swimming pool. This was not attended and one could not swim alone, which means finding another guest who wants to swim with you (a bit limiting.....) However outside temperatures were too low for this to be an attraction during my stay anyway!
The single elevator was slow to arrive and travel and I quickly resorted to the stairs! I did not need to use the laundry facilities during my stay, but they appeared to be in good shape and offer everything one might need.
Staff were pleasant and helpful throughout my stay and gave a genuinely warm and welcoming 'family' feeling
In summary : A good value option for the long-term business traveller, provided that you have a car!
