When checking in the front desk staff was very friendly, asking about our stay and recommending a nearby coffee shop. We never made it to that one, but there's a great Dunn Bros. right next door.
There's a covered parking section with a high steel roof. Unfortunately, the ramp that goes in and out of that section is not graded correctly. We bottomed out our car, granted there were 4 heavy guys in it, but still. Not a nice suprise. They should put up a sign.
We paid $15 a day as hotel guests for parking. It's nice that they give you a card you can just swipe each time you enter or exit. That's better than a paper ticket.
We stayed in a 2 queen room. The beds were very comfortable, around a medium firmness. I love having a fridge instead of a mini-bar! The sink is outside of the bathroom door, which is nicer when you have more than 2 staying in a room.
The elevators are a little slow. The decor is aging, but well kept.
We didn't eat in the restaurant. There's not a lot of restaurants right near by, but Kindee Thai is walking distance and was very good with exceptional service when we dined. The Butcher & The Boar is a little over 20 minute walk away and is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. If you're gay boys, like we are, you may appreciate that "eagleBOLTbar" is just kitty-corner from the hotel.
