Stayed here on our way back from Florida. Love the smell of a brand new hotel. The one drawback was the pool not quite being ready yet. We knew that going in, but they must've been trying to put the finishing touches on as they were working on it before 7:00AM on a Thursday morning and we were right above that area so that was our wake-up call.
Breakfast was better than most HIE's due to having bacon along with the normal offerings I've come to expect from this brand. As a Priority Club member, we received a free upgrade without even asking along with bottled water and snacks for all 4 of us. I'm usually staying on a weekend so having a free USA Today outside my door was a nice surprise.
The guys at the front desk were helpful in pointing us to a local restaurant instead of just the normal chains.
I also enjoyed the interactive touch screen TV in the lobby where you could pull up news, weather, sports, etc.
But the best thing about this hotel was the biggest TV's I've seen in a guest room (probably around 37-42") and they actually had HD channels (local and cable).
Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again if in the area.
