The location of this hotel is unbeatable, obviously for those who have something to do at the University. We booked the Executive Suite, which was on the sixth floor with a balcony overlooking the college and it was HUGE! It had a living room with a tv, desk, a pullout sofa, and several comfortable chairs. Then, in the hallway connecting the living room and bedroom was a little wetbar area with a refrigerator, which was quite large for a hotel, and plenty of cabinet space (not sure what for). The bedroom itself was also huge and had two comfortable queen size beds, a desk, a tv, and another chair. The room was extremely clean and large, but the breakfast left much to be desired. They had juice, donuts, coffee, milk, cereal, and english muffins, but that was it. I expected a bit more for $124, which i guess was a decent rate, just a bit high, considering the accommodations. Also, they are currently redoing the fourth floor and we could hear the noise and drilling and banging loud and clear on the sixth floor at 8:30 am, which was very annoying, considering we were not informed until we walked into the room and saw the note taped to the desk, talking about the renovations. The least they could do is tell you when you check in or decide to make the reservation. Overall, we had a great stay and are likely to return.
