Before I wrote my review, I read some of the few "terrible" rated reviews from other guests. TripAdvisor guidelines prevent me from commenting directly on their complaints, so I will just say that it's clear that you can never please everyone.
Rather I will focus on my stay. I had an appointment nearby and decided to spend the night rather than fight the commute home at 5 PM. What a great decision that was!! Parking is tight despite claims of ample street parking. However, I simply left my keys with the staff and they handled the parking situation.
The room was very nicely appointed, with so many little extras that I cannot list them all. VERY comfortable king bed, high end beddings, pillows and linens. Two flatscreen TVs, a refrigerator with 6 complimentary bottles of spring water, high end toiletries, even some Lysol Air Freshener.
They have a happy-hour between 5-6:30 PM where they serve a variety of select wines, beer, fruit juice, cheese, nuts, cold cut salami, bread, brie, and dates. Also sported some hot mini meatballs. The wines I tried were very good.
Everything about the hotel exceeded expectations. I did not take advantage of the continental breakfast, but my wife enjoyed the coffee and pastries.
To the extent that you can, trust me when I say that this hotel thinks of everything!! Read the negative reviews; if for no other reason than to be amused after you contrast them with your own experience. I will definitely stay here again!
