If you know HGI's, you pretty much know what you are going to get. Usually a small step up from Hampton Inn's. That sums this hotel up for me - an average HGI which means nice large rooms, a good breakfast (which you pay extra for of course) and some extra amenities like the bar and higher standard gym and pool.
I used some Honors points so given the reviews, I chose this over the nearby Doubletree which had some less than positive comments. I had my family with me so my kids very much enjoyed the pool which I would put at above average. The gym area was also nice with modern equipment and plenty of space.
A couple of reviews have mentioned the parking and I would agree that it is annoying to not have the choice of self parking. Nevertheless, $21 is not that much more than you would pay overnight in a public lot and you do get unlimited in and out.
Overall, a solid 4 stars for me. From a business perspective, the Hampton Inn experience is better value but given that it 'cost' me no more points than the other Hilton brands, the HGI was a good choice for me and worth the extra money if you are going to take advantage of all the nice extras.
One last comment - there really is nothing nearby within walking distance so be prepared to drive or use the shuttle.
