After visiting Chestertown for a week, I had an early flight out and decided to come in to the city and play tourist for a day and save a long trip to the airport. The photo makes the hotel look kind of dated and industrial. Once inside it is anything but.
The parking was easy in the large FREE lot. The lobby was beautiful. There was an attractive bar, computers to use in two places and one computer dedicated to checking in for flights and printing boarding passes. When you fly Southwest, you want to get your boarding pass ASAP!
Check in was easy and all of those working at and around the desk were personable and professional. The room was large and clean. I have to say that I didn't expect the level of cleanliness that was there. The bath products were upscale and enjoyable to use. The housekeeper always smiled and said "hello". The room was updated, The bed was so fluffy that I never wanted to leave. The large, flat screen TV worked well. The room included an occasional chair with an ottoman and a desk and chair. Very convenient was a power strip that allowed about every possible connection to the TV and a great place for charging devices.
If you don't wish to leave the property, there is a Champs without going outside. I think the bar has limited food, too, but I didn't eat there, so I am not sure. There is a pool and workout room in the hotel, but I didn't see either one. They sounded quite good!
There's an outlet/regular mall not far (15 minutes?) with all of the chain restaurants and even a casino.
I turned in my rental car the night before departure and ordered up the shuttle and within 15 minutes it whisked me back to the hotel The next morning, the shuttle arrived by 6:10 as I was promised and off we went to the airport.
This is a terrific hotel for a pretty standard price. I would stay there again and again.
