I recognize that the hotel is in the middle of a renovation, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt on that.
- Lighting in the hallway was nice and white. I shudder at hotels with yellow hallway lighting.
- Solid breakfast choices, with protein. The standard fare for HIE.
- Relatively quiet... not too much noise from outside.
- Clean, reasonably well maintained. Obviously they are doing a facelift too.
- A/C worked well.
- WiFi worked fine, without hassle.
- Some caulking in the bathroom was beginning to show its age with yellowing. I've seen worse, and keeping white things white is a challenge for sure. That said, the bathroom was in pretty good condition.
- The size of the bathroom was very small.
- Room door let quite a bit of hallway noise into the room at night as later guests arrived.
- Towels/hand towels were a little less fluffy than I typically encounter at HIE locations. They were not threadbare.
- Room cleaning had blatant disregard for "save the earth" campaign advertised. Hung towels were replaced with fresh towels (I was hoping to reuse at least once). Not a huge deal.
- Room was completely missing the "quiet please" tags to hang outside the room. Would have been nice to hang outside room to prevent room cleaning altogether. Also not a huge deal, I am sure I could have asked for one.
- Door to the room required quite a tug from the outside (or letting it slam) in order to make sure it was latched closed.
Overall, If I were back in town, I would consider a stay here again.
