Overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great location in downtown, staff was friendly, hotel was easy to navigate, parking was good and the breakfast buffet was a good way to start the
The hotel was very presentable and in good shape considering its age, staff was professional and the overall appearance was well kept. The room was a king size bed with a balcony view of downtown. The room was clean, well decorated, well laid out, and comfortable.
It was nice to check out the down town views, the balcony was nice, the king bed was very comfortable and we felt very much at home. Our room had a desk, USB connections for phone chargers was nice, plenty of lighting, big tv, refrigerator, safe, closet area and a comfortable chair. Again given the price, location, & room I would say it was a great value.
The breakfast was a good way to start the morning. I am generally skeptical about hotel breakfast buffets but this one exceeded my expectations. The food was great, good selection, staff was very friendly and the restaurant was nice. I enjoyed some scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, french toast with some orange juice all of which hit the spot. The restaurant was a bit on the dark side though, no natural light (no windows), so more lighting would have been nice, otherwise a great experience.
Some tips: Parking in the garage is tight, so leave the oversized SUV or truck at home and bring a smaller vehicle. I had a full size truck and while I did fine, a smaller vehicle would have been easier to maneuver the garage. We thought about skipping breakfast at the hotel and get something to eat at a nearby restaurant, however having had the breakfast at the hotel I would do it again... good food & you save time as well. Maybe it was me but the hotel elevators were a bit slow, considering there were four elevators... maybe it was me. Again the hotel isn't new, so don't expect a perfect building... but considering that, I felt the staff did a good job of keeping it clean & presentable. Last... Location... it is well located in downtown, convenient to many attractions... within walking distance. My wife and I walked a few blocks to have diner which was great. Also the train station and bus station are right next tot the hotel. The negative about that... those two stations seem to attract a lot of homeless and others just hanging out there, made my wife uncomfortable... not me so much. Again nothing the hotel can do about that, it is what it is.
Overall I measure my experience based on value... do I feel I got what I paid for and the answer for me is a definite yes, with out hesitation. I hope this review helps you, as I tend to read the reviews to get a real person's perspective on the hotel. [Less]
