This hotel felt like it wanted to be an Embassy Suites, but then someone cheaped out on the building materials and forgot to put a restaurant in. It is new, so everything is in reasonably good condition, but the quality is oppressively low, from the heft of the door to the linens to the furniture.
There is an odd little cafe/bar that serves an extremely limited selection (hamburgers, beer, cheap wine...stuff like that) that cannot be delivered to your room. This is not a restaurant and doesn't even seem to have full-time staff. The front desk clerk served as bartender when I was there.
Staff at this hotel are friendly, helpful, and laid back but professional. The hotel felt positively dead when I was there, so it seemed that they were eager to assist SOMEONE.
This hotel could have been nice, but it's not. I predict in a few years when the linens start to fray and the furniture gets scratched, it will feel like a halfway house. Stay at the other hotel on this street, which is cheaper anyway and less depressing.
Likes: the bedroom area is quasi-separate from the living area, the color of the wallpaper in the bathroom, the friendly staff.
Dislikes: very grim atmosphere, minimal amenities.
