Overall a great stay. Nice pool and gym. Starbucks in the complex and all for a very competitive price. They offered late checkout when we asked and the were accommodating when our flight was delayed by several hours. Would stay again.

I didn't really pick the hotel for this trip - it was the conference hotel. The place was great - the only negatives were 1) No microwave in the rooms and 2) The bathroom lighting was way too dim - like shaving by candlelight.

Bathroom small,, heating/cooling in room was poor and no ceiling fan to supplement, experienced problems with self parking, and service at pool inefficient with poor customer service due to bartender having to run back and forth for food. Wireless only worked well in room.

My partner and an associate attended a conference at this location and I went along for the ride. We had been at this location several times before and the renovations are attractive, bright and cheery. The staff has been well schooled in the importance of being accommodating and friendly and they certainly all passed with an A+. The hotel is spotless and easy to navigate, the parking lot is close by and our fees were either waived or paid by the conference committee. Otherwise they are quite costly. Fortunately there are several restaurants nearby so I could walk to inexpensive meals for lunch. The hotel meals are tasty but expensive. Breakfast buffet costs $22.95 all inclusive and they do offer a Continental for a lower cost. The hotel has a Starbucks, a gelato shop, a pizza shop, a deli (which was closed while we were there), a bar and a sundry store. Read less
