The hotel was clean and modern, and I found my room (standard king size bed) very spacious. Bedding and temp controls were good, although towels could have been less rough. The shower was large with good water pressure, but there was no bathtub. There was a new looking flat screen TV on the wall, but I didn't use it.
"High speed" internet connection was included in my package, but after many tries I could not get it to work. Front desk said they were having problems and gave me their ID- which was incredibly slow. The family next store was literally continuously screaming (father and kids seemed to be playing a screaming game), but finally stopped at 12:15 a.m. I figured they might have been evacuees from hurricane Irene and let it slide, so I don't know how the front desk might have handled it. You could hear them easily, but I assume they were unusually loud.
Where this place really falls down is the restaurant. The dinner was at best mediocre. Not sure how you can cook an angus burger medium rare with no juice or flavor. I had a coupon good for two glasses of wine (any wine by the glass, which was nice), but they brought me one glass and took the coupon so I could not use it for the bar later on in the evening if I wanted. Nobody returned to offer water or anything else until the end of the meal.
The buffet breakfast included in the package was very poor. (They have other items from the kitchen, but it is not included). I even asked one of the other guests if this was it, and his answer was "sad, isn't it?" The only hot item was some lukewarm oatmeal. There was a toaster to heat up stale bagels. No eggs or meats of any type. No nonfat milk, yogurt, etc. No waffle maker (not even premade waffles for the toaster!) This is not a breakfast buffet that one would expect at a full scale hotel. I suggest the manager stop in at a Holiday Inn Express or similar and copy some ideas from their free breakfast. They bring juice and coffee to the table, but I finally gave up on a coffee refill and bought some on the Parkway.
This is a nice hotel, but the restaurant needs to lose its "captive audience' attitude and food quality.
