I was in town with colleagues for business, and arrived late in the evening during a terrible rain storm. The hotel is in the middle of a weird area - a maze of huge parking lots and a smattering of tall buildings, so my guess is the majority of their guests are business travelers. It's one of those areas that you bet used to be a farming/rural area, and they plopped down some industry in the middle of it.
While the neighborhood is not all that welcoming, the hotel itself is very nice and we were pleasantly surprised. Welcoming lobby and common areas. Rooms were nicely decorated, beds comfy, bathrooms clean. Wireless internet worked well, too. We only ate one meal there - breakfast one morning, and it was very good. Friendly wait staff also. We didn't use the gym or pool but they both looked well kept. Oh, and they had free hot cocoa in the lobby in nice silver urns which we really enjoyed - just a nice touch.
We were most appreciative of the service, a rare find these days. On our way to the hotel from the train station, our cab driver nearly killed us a few times. So we had him just pull over and leave us on the side of the highway with our luggage in the pouring rain and rush hour. We called the hotel and they came to get us immediately, even tho we didn't even really know where we were and had given them a vague location.
A member of our group also lost a memory stick in their guest room and the staff offered to buy a new one to replace it without hesitation.
There's also a new outdoor mall across the street with great restaurants - Hunt Valley Town Centre. I say it's across the street but with all the weird parking lots, it's not exactly safe or easy to walk there -- but the hotel offers a shuttle to the mall and to area businesses as well. We ate at a fantastic steak place at the mall called Greystone Grill.
Overall, we were pleasantly surprised and would stay there again if in town on business.
