Our family recently stayed 2 nights, a repeat visit from a 3 night stay a year ago. We specifically sought out this property because of the good experience last time, and weren't disappointed. The hotel even had our record from the prior visit, and booked us the same type of room quickly when I called to inquire.
We have 4 young children, and prefer to stay in a 2 bedroom suite to keep the kids close, and so we can cook meals (one child has food allergies so we limit eating out). The suite was well laid out, reasonably priced, very clean, especially the kitchen and dishes.
Small complaints: Draperies don't completely close/aren't light proof. This is important with young kids. Light leaks at the top of the header and between the middle, and it was pretty bright due to the streetlights outside. The train that came through about 4am was SUPER loud with the horn. (Not the hotel's fault - just sayin' it is loud). Air conditioning was loud cycling on and off; we ended up putting it on 'fan' all night to create consistent white noise. And why have three really nice flat panel TVs if the reception is fuzzy analog on every channel?
Compliments: Staff was very responsive, friendly and warm, from reservation to checkout. Breakfast both days was excellent, and the nachos reception was generous enough we almost didn't need to eat dinner. They even had free beer (if you like Bud Light). We had already planned to grill, and cooked burgers in the courtyard on the hotel's Weber gas grill.
Can't beat the location if you're going to Baylor or the Zoo.
We'd stay again.
