Very good value for the price. location is ideal for me on this trip only. Room is tight but very functional. Internet speed mediocre but wired and wireless are available. Mini kitchen is convenient. Digital TV set but no digital tv signal so picture quality is poor. Limited channel selection. Bed in 413 very comfortable. Noise travel between rooms easily so you'll want to move if there is a party next door. Tiny closet that could barely hold my full-size suitcase on it's side. Toilet and shower separated from vanity/lav, a nice feature. Bathroom fan on it's own switch - a benefit. Curved shower curtain for more room and adjustable shower head. Very quiet heating system. Good size desk with adjustable chair but need to move 1/2way into sitting area to see TV while you work. Bugfree! business center is very small. Lots of lamps so no shortage of light in the room. ceiling fan over desk/kitchen area is a nice feature. Complementary breakfast is OK but quite varied (6 cereals, eggs, sausage, pastries, bagels, u-cook waffles, fresh fruit, juice, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. Small concession selling frozen food (weight watchers, hot pockets), candy, chips, and a good variety of drinks, but expensive. For convenience bring a portable power strip for your laptop and chargers. Overall a very good value and recommended.

Stayed for five days here for business. Nice place very cordial staff. Breakfast in the morning was nice. Rooms seem a little dated. Definitely the need to replace the mattresses. Its like sitting in a big sponge no support. Rooms tend to be tight especially near the beds and the tubs.

When we were in town for business we lucked onto my new favorite place. The suites are so nice and roomy. Although it is on 85, it was not loud so sleep was great. Even the maids were quiet. The frig and microwave were new and there was a fold out loveseat in the sitting area.The only con that I can list would be the bed. The matress was a bit hard (no pillowtop) and the linens were OK but not highest quality. The desk staff were very nice.The cont. breakfast was onlyOK but the dining area was nice and clean.Indoor pool andfree internet too. No room service but Carrabas in the parking lot.

I stayed in this hotel since it was not far from the office I had to visit. An average Mariott property with absolutely no excietment. Mediocre breakfast with lukewarm coffee. The recepcionist was friendly. Room is small by american standards. If I had choice I definetly were choosing different hotel. As usual in Marioots, gym is just the execrize room with running machines.

I stayed at a two queen bed room in the second floor of the hotel. The room size was ok, not too smallfor american measures but also not spacious. The bed was comfortable, though too soft for my personal taste. The quality of the furniture is just acceptable (two huge crt tvs with clearly audible mains humming, a small fridge, standing loose in its cupboard etc. Nothing really bad, but it sums up).
I wasn't impressed about the cleanliness and the room service quality either.
Finally I was a little annoyed, that they are offering a "pay 2 nights stay 3" fare at the internet. However, it seems that you have to make sure that you really got that fare when you get there. Nobody will inform you about it unless you are asking directly.
The free breakfast is a basic buffet, dishes are made of plastic.
The pool was more like an oversized bathtub. If you are looking for a place to have a real swim it isn' the place you want to go.

I recently stayed at the Springhill Suites for a concert at the Verizon Wireless Theatre. The hotel was nice and very comfortable. There was a bar area in the room with a frig, microwave, and sink. The living area had a couch that pulled out to a bed. I would recommend this hotel.

Found this to be clean, neat with good facilities for business travel. For one person, the 'sitting area/dining' plus bed area is fine - free internet helps. The included breakfast was fine - not fancy, but reasonable fare. Staff was very gracious and helpful - even with some 11pm business requests. Very easy to get to off of the highway - about 20-30 minutes from the airport (cany vary a lot due to traffic). Microwave and fridge are very helpful for late arrivals - they do have some foodstuffs for purchase 24x7 ... not elegant, but works in a pinch.
