Wow, is all I can say.
This facility is above all others that I have stayed in over the past 20 years of traveling.
Other locations may have some nicer points but this one offers "the full
Parking is Outstanding - I drive a very large service truck and the amount of parking coupled with the layout (don't have to walk a mile) is impressive.
Staff is very friendly - From check in to departure, every interaction with the staff was pleasant. The folk here really seem to be on the caliper of "wanting to be there" opposed to so many today that simply want a paycheck.
Facility very clean - I didn't find any issues at all
Dining was over the top - The evening meals being offered way outweighs the lack of restaurants withing walking distance. Eating in restaurants and ordering take out is probably the worst thing about traveling for over 20 years.For this reason ( convenience ) I will travel out of my way and pass several other IHG facilities.
Breakfast was also impressive - Even though it was the standard HIE breakfast - This location has not fallen into the footsteps as so many others have by limiting your selections. Many will offer biscuits and gravy only a few times a week or choose to offer the dried out sausage patties. This place had it all including sausage links. ( it's all the little things that count )
Dining facility is tight - The layout of the dining facility, although good in size, felt like a very wide hallway. Some folks were bumped by passing guests as they were dining.
Pool - Although I did not use the pool facility this trip, I really like the design I would describe an outdoor pool indoors. The pool area is simply surrounded with glass which lets the sunlight in and keeps the weather out. Slide open the doors and get the nice breeze blowing in. Don't change it - Not many places still offer this experience any longer.
Internet strength gave me no problems at all.
Checkout was the only negative thing I experienced - This location apparently does not slide your receipt under the door - Instead, I had to stand in line to receive my receipt. I would expect, at the bare minimum, Spire members should be offered the "express checkout". I was disappointed with this since the rest of my stay was outstanding. [Less]
