My only complaint would be about the mattress, which was not comfortable for me. The room was lovely and very clean. Not huge, but big enough. We asked for a quiet room and were accommodated with a room on the fifth floor, away from the elevators. (Thank you!)
Breakfast was unimpressive. I skipped the steam table scrambled eggs, mediocre baked goods and instant oatmeal. Dry cereal, a banana and yogurt were fine, though it would have been nice to be tempted by some quality baked goods. The only fruit was a bowl of bananas, apples and oranges. They did have the do-it-yourself waffle scheme which my hubby enjoyed. Oh, one other complaint-- weak, bad coffee. I would have traded the whole buffet for a decent cup of coffee.
The staff was cheerful and helpful. Offered cookies on our arrival even though it was passed tea time. Later I heard the front desk person trying to track down a seafood restaurant for another guest. It was nice to see this concierge-type service at a mid-priced hotel.
