Four of us stayed here for one night for a girl's get-a-way. We were in town for a show at the Toyota Center. This was the perfect location. We booked dinner at a restaurant right across the street (The Grove), so we were able to walk very quickly and easily between hotel, dinner and the the show.
We drove right up and were quickly greeted. Our bags were off loaded and taken inside without any delay. The entrance and lobby are very grand. This is a really big hotel because it's connected to the convention center. Unfortunately when we checked in our rooms weren't ready. We had requested adjoining rooms, and were told we could have two rooms right away if we were willing to take the non-adjoining rooms. We opted to wait. We killed time in the lobby bar that's great for people watching and relaxing with drinks. At 5pm we were told that ONE of our rooms was ready. We had 5:30 dinner plans so we all decided to get ready in one room. It wasn't a problem because we only needed to change clothes and freshen up a bit. Had we all needed to shower, etc., it would have been a problem.
We went to dinner and the show and returned to the hotel at 11:00pm and was told our second room was ready, however, it wasn't adjoining with our first room. It was actually two doors down. After all of that waiting you'd think we could have at least gotten two rooms together. The rooms were very clean, and spacious. Beds were comfy and bathrooms were clean as well. I never heard noise in the hallway and always felt like we had privacy.
There's a Starbuck's in the lobby which made us happy girls in the morning. The hotel restaurant has breakfast to order or an all you can eat breakfast bar for an additional charge. The breakfast bar has a lot of choices from fruit and yogurt to eggs, bacon and sausage. The bar also includes made to order waffles and omelets.
The valet was slow bringing our car around, but in all, I think all of the staff we encountered were all very helpful and pleasant.
This is a very nice hotel and definitely a great value for the price. We really enjoyed our stay. My only complaint would be their inability to give us the adjoining rooms that we'd requested. But I would definitely recommend this hotel and I'd stay here again.
