I have now stayed at this hotel three weeks on business travel, one week last year and two weeks this year. Next summer I will be working in the area for three weeks, and I am definitely planning to stay at this hotel again. All of the rooms I have stayed in were clean, comfortable (especially the beds), and quiet. The air conditioning is quiet and efficient. I have stayed in three different types of rooms: a room with two queen-size beds, a small refrigerator and microwave, and a tub/shower combination; a room with one king-size bed, an upholstered chair in addition to the desk chair, no refrigerator or microwave, and a large shower (no tub); and a suite, with one bed, a sitting area with sofa and ottoman/coffee table, and a long desk/credenza separating the two areas (really helpful for work), a combined tub/shower, and a kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator, and sink. I enjoyed them all, except the lack of a refrigerator and microwave in the king bed room was an inconvenience, since I like to bring my own food for the week. I made do storing my food in a cooler (kept cold with the ice from the ice machine), and the staff could not have been friendlier about hauling their microwave out of the kitchen for me when I wanted to heat up my dinners. If you need a refrigerator and microwave, be sure that you specify that you don't want a king bed- all the rest of the room types have them. The pool is not huge, but it is adequate, and very welcome after a long day working outside. There is also a nice large built-in hot tub that people seemed to enjoy, as well as a fitness room with machines that I didn't use. Another amenity I did use was the laundry facilities, which I didn't realize they had until my most recent visit. The front desk was pleasant about giving me change, and previous visitors had left bottles of laundry detergent, which meant that I didn't need to go out and purchase any. Regarding food, I love the Otis Spunkmeyer cookies they bake fresh and put in the lobby every afternoon. I don't have a lot of time to spend on the complimentary breakfast in the morning (think cold cereal), but I can tell you they have hot items including some type of meat, eggs, and potatoes, there is a waffle machine, they have pastries that I thought looked pretty institutional, hard boiled eggs, fruit salad, whole fruit, cold cereals, juices, etc. I'm pretty picky about orange juice, so I take my own, but most folks would probably think it was ok. If your time is really limited, they also have bagged breakfasts/to go bags you can grab on your way out the door that consist of an apple, a granola bar, a muffin, and a bottled water. One of the hotel's best assets is its staff, who have all seemed pleasant and helpful. Jordan and Chelsea have especially gone above and beyond, answering my many questions and addressing my many needs, all with a smile. I ended up at this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. The fact that the good reviews were well-earned has kept me going back.
