This reviewer was presenting a seminar at this facility. This is a nice place, with a relatively good location, not quite adequate parking (for the needs of the seminar attendees.)
The sleeping room was comfy (room 123) with a king bed and a twin. However, upon entering one found that the air conditioner cover was askew. How can housekeeping not notice this?
The doors to the closet need replacing (come on, how many times have you, fellow traveler, noticed worn closet doors!)
The amenities were typical, the bathroom clean- actually, the entire sleeping room was quite neat and clean. Quiet, with a comfy bed, this room works.
The price paid ($133.00 plus taxes for the sleeping room) did include "breakfast" at the Ruth's Chris located inside the hotel. The breakfast was, well, awful. For the additional fee of getting the "breakfast package" one finds a biscuit with a sausage and a single piece of cheese, a plastic cup of sliced fruit, orange juice (only, no other options), coffee, and dry cereal with milk. Toast and bagels are available. Do yourself a favor and don't get the "breakfast package, but rather go to any of the other local restaurants for breakfast.
Fellow travelers, you need to know that this facility is scheduled for a make over.
This will come none too soon- regarding hosting a conference and/or seminar here.
There were over 200 attendees at the conference. The restrooms are located directly across the hall from the conference rooms.
The women's restroom? 2 stalls.
The men's restroom? 2 stalls.
Additionally, one may find a women's restroom and a men's restroom by the pool, each with an additional stall.
The manager did open up two sleeping rooms for the attendees, which increased the number of available toilets (these became "unisex" restrooms.)
The seminar was indeed a success; however, there were noticeable deficits to the planning stages of the sales and catering folks. When the number of attendees was known, the banquets staff should have at least considered that restroom resources would be an issue well before the day of the event.
Food was provided at the conference through the Ruth's Chris restaurant ($30 per person) for sandwiches and cookies, The sandwiches were tasty, but $30 was a goofy price, and the facility ran out of cookies for the attendees (the banquets staff "budgeted" 2 cookies per person.)
