I stayed here for six weeks and was greeted every morning by Brittany in the kitchen--she puts out a lovely variety of food. Before I went to work and when I came back, Liz, Laurie,
Sara, Christina, Kasey, Chris and others bid me farewell and greeted me and my counterpart with a smile. Nadia and the other housekeeping staff kept the rooms tidy and the area clean. I wish I had caught some more of their names. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, hot water and great pressure, and sole control of the thermostat. Monday-Thursday, delicious cookies after 4! Monday night-beer, wine, soda or water and snacks from 5-7. The pool and hot tub are finally functional!
The minor inconveniences that I got to know because I stayed so long:
The fitness center functions, but needs some love. If you need to get anywhere in a hurry-take the stairs. If you are particular about your coffee, bring your own K-cups. If noise keeps you up or wakes you up, ask for a room on the back of the hotel--I'm told it's quieter. If light bothers you, cover the microwave and shove a towel by the door. If you are next to the housekeeping closet, prepare for a vibrating bed when the washer is on spin cycle! This was more a surprise than an inconvenience
Speaking of wash:
If you do your own wash, $2 for a wash--it may or may not rinse out the soap from one tide pod. Never do more than one, no matter what the directions on the bag say. If you have to do two loads back to back, the dryer (another $2) runs 99 minutes. The washer runs 34. You can easily dry both loads in 45 minutes each. The settings are hot, hotter and nearly on fire. So be careful with any clothes you're particularly attached to.
If you're not used to snow in the south:
I overall really enjoyed my stay here, particularly with the friendly faces I got to know! [Less]
