The hotel staff were all very nice. At check-in we received complimentary whoopie pies and a complimentary bowl for my dog. The shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap all smelled amazing- nothing like usual hotel toiletries. I had forgotten my toothbrush and the vending machine had travel toothbrushes and toothpaste. The front desk was very helpful with any questions we had, and provided a razor and shaving cream upon request. I needed a tampon as I had run out, and the front desk delivered one to my room. The only thing we had wished was better was the a/c. It wasn't unbearably warm in the room, but it wasn't cold, either. We kept the window open at night to cool the room down, but the noise from the street made the dog bark. Overall it was a great experience and we would book there again.

Thank you for staying with us, glad to see for the most part you enjoyed your stay. If you wouldn't mind emailing us or calling to let us know which room you had been in so we can check the HVAC unit to make sure it working properly for the next guest. Thank you again for staying with us.

One bed had a mattress that was higher at the foot than head - very hard to sleep in. They promised to correct it but never did, over 2 days. Linens were not changed the next day, even after promises - woman knocked early though "do not disturb" sign was up, and then never returned. Seemed as though cleaning staff was on a silent strike, they were very indifferent, almost rude. Desk staff pleasant but ineffective. Our room was noisy, next to outside corner where groups talked loudly. We asked for refund for problems, were told no refund because we booked through Travelocity!

This is a nice enough hotel,but the staff (other than one lady at on the desk during the day) acted bored during checking. Another important point for those who have trouble walking, there is only 1 elevator in this large hotel. We carried luggage down 3 very long hallways to find our room.

The staff was quite nice, especially the restaurant staff during the buffet breakfast. There was an older gentleman who took great care of the older guests and was very friendly with all the guests as we ate breakfast. Made a nice atmosphere. The desk staff was good and helpful. The room condition was pretty good - bathroom tub was not cleaned very well and that turned me off a bit. But actually besides that the room was in good shape. Overall it's a nice place and we enjoyed our stay.

Good hotel. Adequate breakfast.

Pros: Clean & comfortable.
Cons: Could see evidence of some updates, needs more.
Some difficulty with staff. Book in room advertised a restaurant & offered a 20% coupon at the desk. Coupon requested, confusing wait & finally manager gave $5 off coupon. Came back with ad that was in the room & then was told by person at the desk that the restaurant no longer existed. Frustrating interaction. Other than that staff at the desk was helpful.
