I have stayed at Spring Hill several times since 2007, throughout the east coast... Always impressed with the size and space.
But this new design is no bigger than a standard hotel room. Sliding doors to the bathroom (separate toilet and shower rooms) is unique and strange. No privacy at all when staying with other family members.
The toilet rooms should have a fan - but don't. And the frosted glass on the shower room makes you feel more exposed . Maybe I am old fashioned, but I can't imagine that other people like this.
This is only suitable if traveling alone.
The parking situation is another matter, three times during my 2 day stay, I was parked in on the drivers side by locals who are using the LA Fitness Center attached to the hotel site. The spaces are very narrow so if someone has an SUV or Truck it takes up alot of space. I could not open my drivers door, and I was parked exactly in the middle of the space. Also the pull off at the entrance on the first floor does not seem to have enough room for two cars. - this is required because check in and the lobby is on the second floor.
I normally am not this negative - and did enjoy the breakfast and the cleanliness of the hotel. But I feel just slightly irritated that I did not enjoy the whole experience this weekend, because of someones idea of modern design.
Note my daughter will be attending UofP and we were hoping to find a place to call home away from home. Will probably have to look elsewhere.
