The front desk staff was pleasant and quick, but ran into issues with the room key. The girl appeared to be new, so I wasn’t surprised. They did apologize and mentioned that I should have called from upstairs, but I didn’t mind the walk. The lobby is under renovation, but they appear to be doing the best they can. Only one working elevator at that time, which wasn’t too much of an inconvenience for when we were using it. The staff does not appear to have a service elevator, so they had to maneuver their cart into our car, which was already a bit full. Staff member in the hallway did not seem to know about the location of breakfast in the morning and made no attempt to find out.
The room was comfortable and clean. Nice white comforters and modern furniture. No variety of pillows, but the bed was comfy. There was a small coffeemaker, but no tea bags. There was a small fridge in the room, which came in handy for drinks. The temperature controls worked WELL and alarm clock was easy to set. The bathrooms were well appointed and clean, albeit a little on the small side.
Buffet breakfast was a few tables set up in a conference room. And it was late. We had to leave around 7:15 and while they said they would open at 7:00 (which I think is too late to start breakfast) they were just bringing in the hot food at 7:15.
Overall we were pleased with the stay.
