Overall, this is a nice place, but I encountered three issues.
1) When I called the hotel the day prior to check-in, I was promised early arrival wouldn't be a problem. I planned to arrive at 1 pm (after a 3 hour drive) so I could shower and change before my afternoon meeting. Upon arrival, I was told there was not one room available and nothing would be open until after 2:30 pm. Nor did they have a lounge where I could relax for a while in semi-privacy, so I ended up changing in the public bathroom stall. To top it off, the clerk was not overly helpful or sympathetic.
2) Internet service was not so great. My tablet was unable to hold the wireless connection, as it kept dropping out and forcing a reconnect every few minutes.
3) The fitness area was sub-par. There are three cardio machines, all of lower quality (not professional stuff), as well as a few dumbbells. These are all crammed in a very small room with only a 10'x6' (approx) open area.
The rest of my stay was fine. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I enjoyed a good night's sleep without interruptions. I'm sure others will have few to little issue with these items, but I was not overly impressed. As an IHG Platinum member, I expect better.
