Stayed here for three nights in July 2011. We loved the bright spacious apartment-style rooms and luxurious en suite bath in our 1-bedroom, 2 bath suite. The hotel is quite new and very clean.
Other strong points: central location, large swimming pool, spa on site, gold fish ponds (kid vote), balcony with table and chairs, nice linens.
Interesting: this building sells itself as green. This means that most cooling is by opening your window. This was fine during the day, but our light sleeper found vehicle noise to be an issue at bedtime.
Downsides: Paying $15/day parking. Hot tub was broken. There was no laundry in our room, despite the fact it was advertised as part of the room specifications. When I brought it up at check out, the reply was "YOU should have told us when you checked in if it was important to you." I thought this was rude and out of line considering it is part of the room description, not a special request on my part. So if it's important to you....
