Are luxurious & trendy 5 star hotels fun? Sure. But when you travel a lot (or have done so), you learn that certain basic comforts will trump the glitz almost every time.
First off, the staff is amazingly friendly. I believe this hotel is franchised out and the people who run it are simply put, lovely.
A King Suite is basically a studio apartment and then some. Full size kitchen, King bed, big bathroom, large closet, desk, tv, dvd player, 2 nightstands.....
As mentioned by the title, it was the small things that really made this hotel experience a pleasure. Some quirky examples: A horseshoe above their main entrance, doggie milk bones at reception for the four-legged guests, nice fluffy (very un-hotel like) towels, beautiful water glasses in the bathroom, nice decor that won't soon go out of style and an 'honor system' pantry full of goodies (you take, then pay for your sundries when you check out of the hotel).
Though I may never again pass through Wake Forest, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
