I stayed for 3 nights last week and found the rooms and service to be comfortable and friendly. Facilities were fine including the restaurant and bar. I didn't use the leisure facilities. The hotel is well located, easy to get to from the airport. Overall nothing special but very handy for the events centre across the road

Perfect place for a stay after a concert! Was surprised to find out that the hotel has a shuttle that will drop you off/pick up off at the Coliseum across the street. You could probably walk, but it would require crossing 6 lanes of traffic. We were thrilled to use this courtesy shuttle, and it saved us on parking fees... More

My wife and I came here and stayed. It was just the two of us. They have a restaurant in the hotel that is good. Full bar, nice lounge, indoor pool and hot tub. The room was clean and the people were nice.

Stayed here for two nights, a Friday and Saturday. We have family in Fort Wayne and have previously stayed at pet-friendly hotels (for big dogs) in the area, but this time we did not bring our dog so we picked a hotel close to our relative's home. What a mistake this was! First, the good. The hot tub was hot,... More

We were in town for a wedding. Reception handled our check-in quickly. I wish we had gotten a room on a higher floor but we did not request a change.

Great room, impressive assessable room. The bathroom was the best. Ate in the hotel restaurant every morning and had dinner too. Also used the gym. Close to Coliseum. Don't need to move your car. I would definitely return.
