I have been commuting on a weekly basis for the last 3 weeks, staying a minimum of three nights. I am ALWAYS greeted by the front desk, check-in is quick & smooth, any issues or questions are handled quickly and efficiently, and any changes I need to make are done without hassle. The front desk staff are great to work with and remember when you go in & out.
They are going through some remodeling right now - improving their hotel with an elevator and an completely re-done interior front entrance way. They are pretty good about not starting loud noises before 7 AM and are wrapped up before 6 PM. Right now the breakfast area seems a little limited as far as choices go - perhaps with the changes they might be able to expand in this area.
I have been requesting the business suite which has a little more room to stretch out in; it can get kind of claustrophobic when stuck in a small room for 3+ days. It has an extra TV, small kitchen area with dorm-sized fridge, microwave and small sink. Nice enough to bring a meal back to the room and eat.
