We stayed here for four nights for the opening weekend of the Balloon Fiesta. Our room was on the second floor of Building Two and faced north, so we got to see the balloons rise over the roof of the hotel next door. This was an added bonus to our 2 days that we spent at the Fiesta. At first staff was friendly and attentive, but when we asked for a safe, we were told they would try to find one for us....we never heard from the front desk about it and never did get a safe. Also, the same response when we reported one of the TV's had a dark screen....it stayed dark our whole visit and again, no word from the front desk. The hotel was full for the Fiesta, but still, a word back would have been appreciated. We had a 1 bedroom suite with a living room, but there was no sink in the bar/kitchen area. The room was clean and the air conditioning did work. This hotel is ideally located for the Fiesta. As someone else noted, there seems to be some landscaping that needs attention. The breakfast room was ample for the number of guests and staff kept the selections fully stocked. There is only one elevator for this large property. Perhaps with the name change, the Choice Hotel chain will make sure this property gets updated.
