I was in town for just one night, having flown from another country in the evening for a meeting the next day. My corporate travel service tried to book me a more typical "business" hotel, but was too far away from where I wanted to be near the office. So, I requested the Campanile.The hotel was certainly not one that you would just "happen upon" and wasn't within easy walking distance of any place to eat or shop that I saw.
But, when I was dropped by my taxi at a few minutes after 10pm, the staff was waiting for me, knew my name, and asked me if I needed anything to eat or drink from the restaurant that was connected through the lobby. (I later realized that they were in the process of closing down for the night, but they were upbeat and cheerful in their offer!)
The room had definitely been more modernized as the Campanile website suggests they have done! Although it was the same floor plan as one I stayed in 5 or 6 years ago, the layout of the furniture, the color choices, and the lighting were much more contemporary feeling. The space worked well and felt a little like a cruise ship.
There was a nice little coffee and tea maker with butter biscuits, which were tasty at when I realized that was my only meal for the night!
The only difficulty I had was in finding my room. Because this is an old style "motel" with external hallways on the front and back of the building, I had a hard time figuring out how to get to my 3rd floor room on the back of the hotel. A little trial and error and everything worked out.
The service in the morning was quick and friendly. The buffet breakfast cost extra and was a little more than I would have liked to spend, but the food choices were many and everything was fresh and very good quality.
I would stay here again, and probably will when I am back in the area again next month!
