I've stayed here twice for a conference, once a year ago and once this past week. Both were stays of 7+ days. The hotel is great, as all HIEs have been (for me) but the service is truly outstanding, and that's why we keep returning.
There are so many great little touches - too many to mention here - but I especially loved the freshly baked cookies in the afternoon at reception, and the free bottled water in the rooms. I also liked that you could make coffee in your room, or choose to take some from the breakfast room downstairs. The fridges in the rooms are huge, perfect for a longer stay.
I received exceptional service from several members of staff, most notably Lesia and Skyler at the front desk. Both ladies were so welcoming and smiley, and they helped me out multiple times with odd requests in such a gracious way. Chason was also wonderfully helpful, if a little quieter. :) The two guys working the front desk was also super helpful and really friendly, but I forget their names.
I had only two niggles - the slow elevator was a touch frustrating at busy times, and the breakfast buffet could use a little work. I'm not that fussy an eater, yet nothing appealed to me.
I would return again in a heartbeat. Thank you HIE Glen Rose for making my stay stress-free, fun and memorable!
