“Great place”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We love this hotel. The staff is very nice and always remembers me when we visit.
The young lady at the Bistro always remembers what kind of coffee I drink.
Will always stay here when coming to Fort Wayne to watch the Tins Caps play.

Very Nice service & meeting organization. Great rooms & meeting rooms. Delicious food and good breakfast. The bar is also a good place for the happy hour and dinner. Walk distance to the Parkview Field. Clean and quiet.

The staff at the Downtown property made sure that every detail of my trip was covered. The shuttle met me at the airport, check in was a breeze, the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was very convenient and a healthy way to start my day. The team had the shuttle ready to get me to the airport on time to catch my flight home. Special "shout out" to Kelly and the college student who drove me to the airport, Friendly, professional service. Everyone made me feel right at home!

I stayed here 8/5/14 on the top floor in the room at the end of the hall. It was a handicapped room for either hearing/vision impaired. I thought that was quite thoughtful for the hotel to have not just one, but several rooms on that floor designed for those with disabilities.

The room was nice. King size bed, fridge, microwave, big shower with a nice heavy glass door. I didn't use the internet at the hotel, so I can't speak to its speed/ease of access. But the room suited my needs for the one night.

The lobby was well equipped for the business traveler. Power outlets located all around the lobby. Our flight was delayed so we camped out in the lobby and worked for several hours until we went back to the airport. The lobby was the perfect place for us to work and it was comfortable too (much better than working at the airport!).

The Starbucks and breakfast was good. I had the oatmeal and enjoyed it.

We had late night snacks at the on-site restaurant. It was "bar food" "American" type place. I had the margarita and spinach artichoke dip. It was normal food. Nothing special but it worked just fine.

If returning to the area, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Away from elevators. My boss's room was right next to the elevators and he said people were loud...

This hotel is right downtown next to the baseball field and at the Convention Center. It has easy access to many downtown attractions. The hotel is updated nicely, staff is friendly and very clean. There is a Champions Sports Grill on site and a Bistro for Breakfast. The Breakfast options are basic but they do serve Starbucks Coffee. They have a small store for snacks, drinks, and basic items but plan to spend a small fortune for items here. Free wi-fi in the rooms and through out the hotel is nice. The pool on site is indoors and small but very clean. Very nice work out facility is available also. The outdoor seating and firepit was nice and relaxing. The onsite parking is a fee but very small $7. The rooms are large, updates, clean, and have a hairdryer, microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. The beds were slightly stiff but the bedding was fluffy and comfy. If you need a hotel downtown this is a great option. We love Mariott hotels and always choose this chain first. This hotel did not disappoint.

Not to be long winded, but here is the good: Priceline price was $65, Bed was very comfortable, Room was quiet, and staff seemed courteous. Bad: Fridge in room did NOT work (didnt find that out till the morning and the pop was still warm), complimentary hairdryer was tiny, Microwave couldnt do microwave popcorn to save its life.
Bottom Line: Good stay for the money, close to a lot of things in the Fort, comfortable. I would recommend.

One last thing: Since we got the room through Priceline, we got two Queen beds. Not a big deal, but they said it would cost $40 a night extra for a King bed. Really?

This hotel was the assigned hotel for the wedding we attended in Fort Wayne last weekend, so our visit was by choice, but the hotel was picked for us. We were pleasantly surprised. We were originally booked for just Saturday night and called to ask for Friday night, too, just a few days before we arrived. The initial response I received was negative and the “wedding block” rate could not be had. It was an $80 increase, so I actually searched elsewhere in the city for a more reasonable alternative for Friday night. Tried calling back again the next evening, spoke to a very nice person who suggested she have the manager call me back in the morning. He called and agreed to give us Friday night at the same rate without hesitation. Very nicely handled.

First off, this is a downtown hotel. No shopping malls across the street or restaurants on every corner. Saturday was quiet downtown. Parking was very convenient – a parking building right next door but cost was $7 per night. Not thrilled at the cost, but convenient and easily accessible for those things you forgot you left in the trunk. Breakfast was not included, but local choices were limited nearby. We walked a few blocks to a diner called Cindy’s but it was very small and very busy. Might have been a good sign of good food, but we weren’t willing to wait. The hotel café was a little gourmet and a little pricey. Note for families - didn’t realize there was a McDonalds just 2-3 blocks away – an easy walk. And, there’s also a Taco Bell across the street from McD’s. There was a farmers market Saturday morning within two blocks of the hotel that some of our group discovered, too.

We also discovered a sports bar/grill just behind the hotel (half block away) that had a really good lunch special (even on Saturday) and all in our group were pleased with their selections. Quiet place during the afternoon, but was a fun night spot, too. Had a live band Saturday night and place was full.

There is also a minor league ballpark that is right next door. Literally next door. It was VERY nice. I’m not a baseball fan, but this was a fun event and a top notch ball field. We bought cheap seats ($5 grass level) and were very comfortable to enjoy a summer evening at such a clean park. Better yet, there were fireworks both nights that we were there – right on the field behind the hotel. Yes, 10 minutes of noise, but spectacular fireworks for all to enjoy.

Our room was a two queen room on the 6th floor on ballfield side of the hotel. If you can, ask for a room on the ballfield side. Nice view, fun to see the game and fireworks. Room was clean, cool and didn’t smell like a closed up hotel room. No problems with the room other than finding the last guest’s comb in the shower. Toiletries were usual – 2 soaps, shampoo/conditioner/lotion. Hair dryer, iron, ironing board in room. Ice machine down the hall. Internet worked good and included in the room cost. Noise was minimal, although there were 4 weddings that night closeby and a few basketball teams staying at the hotel. There was a pool, but it was indoor and about the size of my family room – maybe. But, those in our group who used it said it was fine. Chlorine smell was noticeable when you walked down the hall by it.

In lieu of the pool, there was a big open patio that was between the hotel and the ballfield. It was quite nice, clean and had ample patio furniture and a nice alternative to sitting in a lobby or in the room. We gravitated to this area many times, including to watch the fireworks and enjoy the late evening with the group. This was a nice addition that not many hotels usually have.

The wedding we attended was at Baker Street Station. It’s three blocks away but was a safe, easy walk to/from. (I’m not used to walking downtown, let alone at night) This was an excellent choice of hotel and venue for the wedding – totally convenient. We didn’t even move our car until check out.

Overall, it wasn’t a bargain hotel, but not many downtown hotels are. It was a very nice place to stay and I would recommend it without hesitation.
