The first drawback to this hotel is that it is difficult to find the first time. Check-in was quick and professional. Our room was great. It was a junior suite but was very roomy and comfortable. Bed and bedding were excellent. The sitting area had room for 4 or five people and the TV was large. The major problem had more to do with the bar/restaurant than the hotel itself. The first night, we went down to eat and were told that Happy Hour was still in effect for 15 minutes. We each ordered a drink. My spaghetti was fine--not outstanding--but fine. His shrimp alfredo was not good. The sauce was ok but the shrimp were way overdone. The shock came when we got our bill. We expected to have 2 drinks at Happy Hour prices and 2 at regular prices. Instead, our 4 drinks totaled $42.00! The next night we stayed in our room and picked up a pizza from the bar. It was excellent and we saved more than $60.00. So, if you stay here and want to eat, order the pizza and pick it up at the bar. I'd order off the menu for breakfast. The buffet isn't worth it.
