This hotel is right off I-75, clustered with a few others, and easy to find. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous! Very upscale. The open center allows you to look down to the lobby from all the floors. Carpeting was clean and not worn. The first elevator we took up to our 6th floor room was a little scarry. It kind of lurched and moaned when we reached our floor. I couldn't get off fast enough. Other than that, there were no incidences.
The hot tub was a HUGE disappointment! It was more like bath water and the jets only slightly bubbled. It wasn't worth getting my bathing suit wet. Horrible.
We didn't get into the pool because there was a bunch of youth baseball players there for their travel teams. Very loud, but they had fun. There was also a sauna we didn't use .... the kids were playing in it.
The restaurant wasn't open for dinner so we had to go elsewhere. We went to Bob Evan's down the road .... BIG mistake! Service was basically non-existent. Food was ok - the usual Bob Evan's stuff.
The beds were cozy and comfortable. Internet access easily accessible. The shower was ok. I had to turn the knob all the way around and then to the setting for warm water. If I just turned it to the warm center, it never got warm - had to go all the way around. Weird!
Lighting in the room was poor. We had all the lights on and we still strained to see what we were looking at.
I don't know if the staff knew it, but there was a wall hanging missing. The hooks were still there, but no picture.
Breakfast room service was good and the food was excellent. We decided on room service instead of going to the dining area because of the number of children staying in the hotel. There would be no room to sit.
