This hotel was recently remodeled and it has a wonderfully contemporary feel to it. From the lobby to the rooms the entire place is fresh, modern, and upscale, and our stay here was wonderful with the exception of a few, minor, details.
1) Luggage Carts. Big hotel, 5 floors, 50 or more rooms per floor, and they have a total of 1, I repeat, 1 luggage cart. It was old and creaky, not like the newer, more mobile, three wheeled carts that were available to us at the Knoxville La Quinta. On top of that it went 'missing' when we needed it to shlep out bags down from our room at one end of the hotel to the lobby at the other end. Not a huge deal, but c'mon, even the La Quinta in Gurnee, Illinois - an older hotel with much more of a budget feel to it - has three luggage carts.
2) The Bathtub. You've got a big hotel, you do a remodel room by room right down to the lobby and when it comes to the tubs you get cheap? Really? The tub in our suite was definitely pre-remodel. It was at least 15 years old and the 'grab bar' was placed in the most inconvenient place so no matter what you did you bumped into it.
3) Comfortable couches - we had a suite, a really nice suite, the kind that comes with a couch. A nice, modern, uncomfortable couch. It was designed in such a way that you either sat perched on the edge or sat aaall the way back and had your feet dangling, and God help you if you are a pregnant woman, you won't get up at all without a crane.
Other than those quibbles the room was amazing - big and spacious, separate lounge/living room with it's own LCD TV. Good seating other than the couch. Oh, and one more quibble - the outlets in the room didn't all work, which seemed odd given the expensive remodel they'd done. Still, a great place to stay and very, very much worth the price.
