The TV, AC and breakfast were the only redeeming qualities of this hotel. The room wasn't as clean as I'm used to (aka, the bathtub was dirty, the carpet needs to be replaced, and the linens need to be replaced.). Also, the service from most of the employees was disappointing - excluding the servers/waitresses and one lady at the front desk. The business center is completely UNRELIABLE and the computers take at least three minnutes to upload even one page of the internet. The computers and internet (business center AND room) are too slow need to be upgraded to match today's need for reliable computer and to conduct business.
The only areas that seemed to boom with business are the "Comedy Zone" and the restaurant where you eat the breakfast buffet. But the "Comedy Zone" is adults only comedy when I was staying there with my family, which was not good considering you could hear the crude jokes throughout the lobby/restaurant area. I cannot speak for the conference rooms, but I sincerely hope the rooms are nice areas.
I sorely wanted to give a great review for such a great breakfast, but I cannot lie about how I found the hotel lacking in important qualities such as cleanliness and reliable WIFI/computer usage. The rooms are also connected, I think for bigger parties, but its not safe-feeling when the folks on the other side are trying to figure out how to open the locked door in their room.
Some more good thoughts: great location, next to I-295 and shopping and restaurants.
