Traveling from PA to MA and was looking to stay one night to help break up the trip. The room was CLEAN (huge deal breaker for me if it's not sanitary), spacious, and comfortable. In fact, the bed was my favorite part, and I usually can't sleep away from my Sleep Number bed. I also really appreciated being able to fully open the window, as there was a gorgeous breeze outside. Emanuel greeted us with a warm smile and some cold bottled water. The Bistro, lounge, and foyer were very stylish. My 20 oz Starbucks decaf with a shot of hazelnut was only $3, fresh and good. Our breakfast sandwiches were delicious, albeit a bit pricey. ($16 for 2 sandwiches) However, my egg-white, spinach, and Havarti cheese on a homemade English muffin was really tasty, healthy, and it came with a small side of fresh fruit. Throw in the fact that we just had to go downstairs to get a hot breakfast sweetened the deal.
Another great thing about this hotel is the fact that it's near TONS of stores & restaurants. Walked around the mall down the street, which from the outside looks like 3 stores, but is enormous on the inside. We also drove a bit down the road and had a yummy diner at Carabbas. After dinner, we chose "parks" on our GPS and it took us to a little park with a lake, small fishing pier, and small walking trail on Buckland Rd.
My one complaint has nothing to do with the hotel or staff, but with a bunch of hipsters coming from a wedding or dance who, along with their coolers filled with liquor, kept talking, laughing and slamming in and out of their rooms past 2 a.m. Even the good insulation between rooms couldn't block them out. Luckily my husband figured out how to turn the AC fan/blower on continuously as a white noise and I was finally able to sleep. Now, I love having a great time as much as the next person, but if you're in a public place that folks are paying for and it's after 11, take the party elsewhere or shut up!
With that said, don't pass up this hotel. It's a great place and a good deal.
