The hotel is hidden away off any main streets so it is pretty quiet. I was only there one night, so I didn't get to experience the firepit and walking trail area outside. The suite is very spacious and I liked having a living room area, office area and bedroom area. The only negative is that the pool was closed for maintenance and the staff didn't really seem to care that I cared about that. It would have been nice for the lady at check-in to acknowledge that maybe guests chose the hotel for that amenity and apologize for the inconvenience, maybe offer a discount on a future stay or something. Something to make the customer feel special. But no. The breakfast was very nicely presented and I liked the choices: fruit, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, yogurt, and a variety of breads.

Overall good. The only downside was that there was no staff picking up my call from the airport. Maybe they were busy early in the morning. We ended up taking a taxi.

Good if need handicapped features if traveling feo

Pros: Handy to hospitals and clinics. Good area it load passengers in the rain. In a quiet area by lake and trees.
Cons: Buildings seem to have a strip or bump between types of flooring. This is a challenge for someone new to walkers. Puts one off balance.
Location: Providence Hospital and Lake Otis Medical buildings
Needed grab bars and shower bench and plenty of room to operate equipment. Also wheelchair to use from car to room. Nice choice for breakfast and staff offered to help me with coffee transport. When walking in hall for exercise staff asked if I needed anything. My husband also liked the facility. Exercise room and whirlpool. Busy place but not noisy.
