We just recently stayed at this hotel for three nights and the service was excellent. Very friendly front desk people and we forgot a couple things in the room and they called me and were able to send it with someone from our group that hadn't left yet.

The room was nice and clean. The staff was great. The cleaning department did a great job. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. The breakfast was just so so. The breakfast attendant was putting things away and cleaning the waffle iron at 8:30 am and breakfast was to run until 9 am. There were still people coming down...

I chose this hotel from all the positive reviews I read. Thankfully they were all true! For the price, this is a great hotel. Large room and very nice breakfast. My husband liked the fact that it was very quiet and he slept throughout the whole night. We weren't too thrilled about the small pillows, but heck, it wasn't that...
