It is convenient to the University. It did look like it had a lovely outdoor pool. The restaurant had a wide variety to choose from but the service was a bit slow. The main negative where is our room had ants. They offered no discount for the unwanted guest. The Front desk was a bit out with us reporting them. We stayed graduation weekend so I assume this was the busiest the hotel has been prior Covid. You cannot beat the convenience to the University.
