I have stayed in this hotel for the past several years. In total I have stayed about 60+/- nights within three years 2010-2013. I have had nothing but the best service. The rooms are always clean and the bathrooms are spotless. The beds are so comfortable when I lay down I fall asleep very quickly. I love how the television is HUGE and rotates on its base so I can either watch it in the living room or in the bedroom. The cleaning staff really cleans and scrubs...I could have eaten off the floor if I wished. When I first checked in I was in shock. I could not believe how beautiful and luxurious this hotel really is for the amount that I paid. I was quoted $189 at the busiest time of the year and when I asked for a discount, they gave me 10% off just for asking! Hotel.com was more expensive than just asking the front desk for a discount. The front desk staff were super friendly and super accommodating. I was one of the displaced CT residents who had to stay for up to two weeks at a time on two separate occasions. They were so accommodating and even gave me additional discounts. I ended up paying about $140 per night instead of $189. They just gave me an extended stay discount. Make sure that you ask for one if you are staying for a long time. Also the breakfast was amazing. I have paid up to $30 per person for a buffet like this, however it was included for FREE In my room rate. The best was the fresh made-to-order station for omelets. They were HEAVEN. They served oatmeal, cold cereal, bacon, sausage, french toast, pancakes, bread (they have a toaster) and bagels, pastry's, and yogurt with your choice of specialty nuts and fresh fruits. I wish I could afford to live here! It was especially kind to find out that when there was a threat of loss of power they had flashlights for everyone in case the power failed. I call that being considerate. I found that the UNDERGROUND parking can get full quick so I made sure that my vehicle was parked underneath quickly. It is safe and no removal of snow on the roof in the morning. They are pet friendly, however you will have to pay if your pet does something it should not do in the room. I was not charged this fee since my doggies were perfect! You will need to clean up after your dog if they make a #2. They have waste containers and bags outside in the rear of the building, or just take your laundry bag so you can pick up after your pooch. It is just proper etiquette. The best evening meal is the Sierra Chicken! OMG...I stop in just to order a meal to go and sometimes eat there. Its just that good. I can't get enough. The pool is just perfect and warm, the hot-tub is great. The bathrooms in the pool area have a shower and very large restrooms. It is key card required to keep those who do not belong out. The exercise room is awesome! I can't say enough good things about this hotel! The laundry room was CHEAP! Make sure to bring quarters. Everything was just fantastic and my overall experience for over three years and one hotel name change is that I would recommend this to everyone and anyone as an amazing place to stay. I hope my ridiculously long review will help to influence your decision to stay at this hotel...you won't regret it at all, unless your my aunt who regrets having to leave the hotel. She loves it as much as I do! She and my Uncle party at the bar in the evenings when she visits and they make tons of friends!
