Check in was smooth, staff nice. The room lock was dead, moved to another room. Room nice but not remodeled. Bed was way comfortable, slept great except for noisey guests in hall at 2AM and constuction noise. Toilet plugged once but fixed within 10 min. Maids did a good job on rooms. Be aware of add on Eco nightly fee can be removed, but you have to ask for it to be taken off. Location wasn't bad but some driving to sights. Mall and food options within 5 min drive. Could walk it but make sure you know where you are going. We had Bfast included and we had both buffett and ordered from menu. Food was good and service was except Sunday it took way too long to get food (Bfast orders compete with Sunday Brunch set up). Also it was bad taste for wait staff to fix a worker injury in busing area as it was in full view of guests on Sunday! This hotel has a good basic workout room with upright bike, treadmill,eliptical and all in one circuit (all Life Fitness) Treadmill does need a new belt but it all works. Also TV,water and towels supplied. They have hot tub but didn't use and pool was closed for winter. The parking was a bit of a problem on weekends. They have a club also but no dedicated parking for guests so that wasn't too great. In summary this is a very good hotel but beware they are doing a major upgrade and I expect prices to increase which may tip the scales the other way after the renovation is complete. In which case there may be better options for the money with better locations. But until then I would come here again without hesitation.
