I'm a native Bristolian so I know the area well. In trying to decide on a hotel, there are only a few in which I would consider staying. I had narrowed it down to two and the deciding factor was the indoor pool. Large, nice movie theater right across the street. Several chain restaurants in walking distance - across the street and next door. Hotel surrounded by small speciality shops (large bookstore, clothing stores, home decor, etc.). However, if you don't like the sound of traffic then this may not be a great location for you. The front side of the hotel faces the interstate and the back faces the theater. We stayed on the backside and only heard parking lot noise once for about 10 minutes. I did hear everytime shut their door though. They are heavy and close very loudly. Hotel staff was very courteous and the rooms felt very private. I've stayed places other where the housekeeping was pushy, even with the sign on the door. We had a room with a king size bed. It also had a loveseat and coffee table. The lobby is very nice and open. There is a restaurant and a bar with TV's and a fireplace. There also is a back corner with a computer. Rooms were very clean and the beds are comfortable. My favorite thing about the hotel is that they do not use standard decorative comforters. They put a lightweight comforter between two sheets and accent the foot of the bed with a decorative piece. It made the room so much more cleaner and comfy knowing there wasn't a stuffy old heavy comforter that everybody had been on. This is a new hotel so the carpet is in excellent condition. Also, the window shades keep the room very dark. The only complaint is they closed the pool for maintenance for a whole day with no notice. The pool was nice and warm but the hot tub was not hot. It was only a few degrees warmer than the pool. It felt like bath water. There is a fitness room. This is where we plan to stay on our next visit. Loved that checkout time wasn't til noon. If they added complimentary breakfast, it would be the perfect choice!
