This is an old hotel with a very good nice looking renovation. It's priced appropriately for the average quality and location...cheaper than downtown and NW Harbison areas. The rooms are spacious, all public areas and guest rooms nicely redone. That having been said, there are some things you just can't change about an old hotel without a huge financial commitment.... during high demand times in the morning you just can't get hot water and the a/c units are loud. If you give yourself an extra 20-30 minutes of letting the water run on hot you can eventually get a nice steamy shower but don't expect to get one any sooner than that if alot of other guests are also showering. At other times, like afternoon, you'll get hot water within 5 mins. We had a king suite. They seem to have a large percentage of king suites so if you're eligible for an upgrade you have a good shot at it. The suite was spacious with a dining table, frig and pull out sofa. However, don't plan on sleeping on the pull out sofas. It's impossible unless you leave it folded up and just sleep on it as a couch. The mattress on the pull out feels like you are sitting on meshed wire with no covering and even a kid can't sleep on that thing. I couldn't even sit on it when it was folded out like a bed! Lounge was very cute and good service there. The restaurant buffet was luke warm in the morning and the servers were friendly. Service over all was average. Would I stay here again? Maybe, if I can't find anything else available at a reasonable price. I can't complain since the King bed was comfy, it was clean and spacious and I only paid in the $80s which I felt to be a bargain on a high demand weekend.
