I stayed here for business because I prefer mid-class hotels--they generally provide better service than 4 stars and save me a lot of money. The internet was free and easy, the room was meticulous and spacious. Staff was a real surprise--some of the nicest front desk folks I've come across. Breakfast was easy and the hot waffles are great.
I was at meetings most of the day, but at night, the hotel was mostly filled with families & kids who were a little loud, but never obnoxious. If you are a very light sleeper or bothered by kids, this is not the place for you, but having said that, it was a great stay, and I'd happily go back.
One surprise was the relative lack of nearby restaurants. Even though the hotel is in a beautique shopping center, there is only one restaurant and it's really a wine bar. You will have to drive a couple of miles to get to another restaurant.
