I stayed here two nights on business and the room was more than adequate. The hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly, and it was centrally located. The complimentary breakfast had a wide variety of food options (Greek yogurt, fruit, waffles, bagels). The coffee hot and they had a nice creamer selection. I'd definitely stay here again.

Staff was very gracious and hospitable. Check in was a breeze. The room was comfort, water pressure was excellent, bathroom was clean and beds were comfortable. Pillows need to be a bit firmer. Breakfast was plentiful. Two different sorts of waffles, scrambled and and cheese omelet, sausages, muffins, bagels, yogurt, donuts, cereal, fruit, and more. Something for everyone.

“Rooms have been renovated lately but I always check to ensure that the flow of water in the bath-tub is good. Another idea could be to check if your room faces the front (better view) or back...not a big issue.”

“I was on the 4th floor w/2 bus groups occupying other rooms. Maybe if I'd known, I would have asked for another room.”
  • Would prefer a few larger pillows, than many small
  • Nice view, good temp control, wake up call
  • Fridge, great TV picture, safe (you're charged, so dispute it!)
  • Double shower curtain: room in good condition
  • The usual ammenities: clean and neat
