This review is long overdue, but I'm just starting to recover from a lengthy illness. My first stay here was in Jan. 09. I have stayed many times since then, sometimes as many as 4 days a week. First of all I would like to say that the staff of this hotel are the best! I was always greeted by name and in a warm and welcoming manner. Every request was handled immediately. A very special thank you to Omar and Umer for always having a room for us and upgrading us every single time to a 1 bedroom suite @ no extra charge! We also greatly appreciated the complimentary fruit and cheese plates and fresh apples that were sent to our room after a long day @ the medical center.
Our room was always spotlessly clean and all furnishings seemed brand new. We especially liked the full kitchen and the huge bathroom and walk-in closet. Very handy when your staying for several days at a time! We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food was really good. The mushroom risotto and shrimp cocktail are yummy! The only thing I would change would be to add some more dishes from the restaurant to the room service menu. I would suggest a steak dish, a chicken dish, some sort of seafood dish and a couple of pizza options. All in all a fabulous stay and we will definitely be back in the future!
