I stayed at this hotel from April 30 to May 5, 2012.
The staff at the front desk greeted me warmly and were extremely helpful, very kind and courteous. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel lobby was very clean. We took the elevator up to our room which was also very clean. After reading previous reviews about the wake-up call, I was a bit weary but I have to say that the wake-up service was excellent. This hotel offered free shuttle service within a mile radius of the hotel. This was enough coverage as a mall, grocery store and the metro was all within the mile radius. The driver of hotel shuttle was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to assist.
This hotel is within walking distance of some great hang out spots, and nice restaurants. The restaurant at the hotel was also very nice. The wait staff were extremely helpful and after the second day, the waiter was able to know what I wanted from what I didn't. It's just that little extra touch that makes you feel special.
The hotel has a gym which I did not take advantage of since I was doing a lot of shopping.
The manager of the hotel, John was cheerful, helpful, will go out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. Even though he was the manager and very busy, he was still able to add that personal touch to our stay. Overall warm and friendy staff.
After this wonderful experience I would definitely look to book at this hotel again. It was just perfect!
