My check-in was easy, the room was clean and large (it was a corner room), and the bed was comfortable. But the "restaurant" (which was only the bar later in the day) was only mediocre, and frequently it was hard to find someone to wait on you. There was a snowstorm during my stay, and there was only 1 person working at the bar (if you don't count the manager who was standing around not doing anything to help the poor woman who was taking orders) and a very long wait to get a drink or food. It was very frustrating, since there weren't many other places open to get food because of the storm. That being said, there are some interesting restaurants in the area which I would definitely recommend over getting food at the hotel. Generally, it was a fine place to stay, and close to where I needed to be for work.
