Stayed here for a week on business travel. I chose this hotel over the Hilton Garden Inn that I stayed at last time for the simple reason of the "OSHA" door at Hilton Garden Inn which drove me CRAZY the last time I was down here for business (see previous review for details).
My room was clean and quiet. When on business travel I really appreciate a 2 room suite for longer stays and this hotel fit the bill. They provide a full refrigerator, microwave oven (which mine was in-op) and a 2 burner stove.
I only have three (minor) areas that they could improve on: Bedding, breakfast buffet, and a extremely (minor) housekeeping issue.
The comforter they provide is extremely thin, I had to add the blanket from the closet to compensate, plus the bed overall is pretty average, not as comfortable as the hotel I just came from.
I only tried the breakfast buffet on a weekend morning, every other morning I was tied up with getting to work. It's average, nothing special, the area they have is pretty small and filled up quickly while I was there. I guess I'm spoiled from other hotels with large spaces where I can get some last minute work done and cook to order. If I was here with my family, I don't think I would have the same opinion, it's probably fine for families.
The minor housekeeping issue for me was just the fact that I had to constantly ask for coffee. I flagged down the housekeeper on my floor and she gave it to me right away, but they only filled it up twice during my 7 day stay. I don't want to knock them too hard because outside of that they did a great job resetting my linens and kitchen each day.
I know I'll find myself down here next month for weeks. I will not hesitate to book this hotel on business, and recommend it for all travelers.
