I've stayed at this property multiple times in the past. In fact, the last visit didn't go so well (see prior reviews) However, our work team selected this property for the proximity to walking distance eateries and the overall value. About $79 nightly through our corporate rate. Check in cookies are yummy.
Nothing has changed with this place. The same old treadmill in the workout room. The same decor, the same older, very basic fixtures in the room. The same cheapest kleenex and TP they can source. The carpet is in decent shape in the room. The room was clean. The sheets are horribly scratchy. I was either too cool with just a sheet, or too hot with the duvet. The shower head offers 3 options but none of them are just right. I'd prefer a basic shower head. Others in our group liked the shower head - it just didn't have a good option for water coverage and for someone with a thick head of hair to wash!
I'd say sleep quality is 6 out of 10. Cleanliness 9 of 10. Breakfast 6 out of 10...nothing spectacular there. They do have hard boiled eggs if you want "real" egg instead of those egg pattie things.
The a/c heater wall unit is so annoying. It makes clicking and buzzing sounds everytime it cycles on. However, at least on this visit, it worked. (previous visit A/C didn't work) Of course didn't try A/C this trip - it was freezing and we got over a foot of snow one day!
I was in room 406, which was a good spot for me, not too close to the stairwell or the elevator. 410 would have even been closer to the middle.of the hall.
Overall, if they could spruce up this place with some renovations this could really be THE desired spot to stay. The public areas still have the same old decor.
They were very accomodating to our group to use the library on the day we had to stay in the hotel due to weather shutdowns at our work facility.
I'd probably stay again, but only if the price was right and others were with me.
