Stayed one night for business. Check in was easy and I received room as requested. Took bags to room and then parked car per front desk recommendations.
There is a reason they tell you to unpack first. Garage is adjacent to hotel but there is a twenty foot exposure where you could get drenched if raining. Garage felt tight but tons of spaces past 8. Felt dangerous, though. I didn't see a soul but it was eghhh.
There was some large smear on the bed skirt that I hope was vanilla ice cream that was dropped. It came of easy with wet washcloth. The bedside lamp button got stuck. I unscrewed the bulb. There were tons of plugs. There is an outlet under nightstand.
I never like the European half glass doors in the shower. Toiletries are Paul Mitchel. It felt like someone half emptied the bottles. Front desk didn't have toothpaste. Springhill is always known to have the red crest packets and red brushes. They acted like I was crazy.
Good nights rest. Two HBO channels and Guide feature let's you easily navigate TV like at home. Two blocks...quick... By car to subway and arbys. Really easy to get to pizzahut. It is less than one block.
Breakfast was weak. I was living on EST. At 6:15 food was already not fresh. Fruit was beat up. Old bananas past ripe and beat up apples.
Overall needs just a little work to be an excellent. I would stay again.
