The Home2 Suites at this location was just completed in the last year. So, on the plus side, the modern decor is all nice and new. The saline pool and fitness center look spectacular. The rooms are spacious and have great amenities. The suite has an almost full kitchen with stainless steel appliances. It includes a keurig coffee maker and a full set of plates and silverware. The 42" TV was very clear.
Where the hotel falls flat is in the important parts. The beds are as hard as rocks and extremely uncomfortable. The room was pretty well insulated from the sound of other rooms but the outside noise is almost deafening. The music from the Burgerfi restaurant blares on outside speakers til about 11 or later. This music echos in the hotel rooms.
The complimentary breakfast would have been nice. The problem was the hoards of people, clearly not staying at the hotel, walking in off the street to partake. These moochers combined with the unbelievable amount of child guests made the food almost unreachable,
Parking is of course ridiculously expensive. You can pay $40 a day with the hotel for in and out privileges with the garage next door or $35 at the garage with no privileges.
Since this hotel has large suites with sleeping sofas, and lower prices, it of course attracted quality families. Rude and unsupervised gangs of children roamed the hotel at all hours. The pool was unusable as there were maybe 400 kids in a 15' x 15' pool.
Perhaps the hotel can institute some new policies and talk to the restaurant next door about not blasting music outside into the late night hours. It may help.
So, if you have lots of hungry kids who want to stay in the city, go swimming, sleep on slabs of concrete with dance music blaring in your ears, for a cheap price(as long as you don't try to park your car) then this is the hotel you have been waiting for!
