I was very impressed at the professional internal and external appearance, the hospitality and room. Excellent people and facility. The only fair rating was the typically average HIX breakfast bar. Not bad mind you but it sure does get old after eating at as many as I have.

Underwhelmed

Hotel room still smelled like smoke even though it was non smoking. Breakfast selection was abysmal and the coffee was less than desired. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The only good thing about this hotel was it was easy to find and close to my destination.

Best hotel stay ever

The staff was ggrrrreeeeaaaatttttt from the time I checked in until I checked out. During my stay, I asked about places to see ,things to do, where to eat and I got very good comments on everything I ask. The hotel breakfast is one of the best I have had in a hotel. It isn't fancy, just plain ,simple, fresh,and tasty. The room was clean. It smelled clean and I did not fine anything left from previous customers. If I was to change anything, I would like to have been able to have an open window verse the air conditioner. My visit was so nice , I took my girlfriend back the following weekend to show her the places I had been the week before. She was impressed with the hotel.

Mediocre is the new good

Nothing special. Staff was nice, place was clean, but the beds were very uncomfortable, there's no fitness room/gym, and overall the place is just a hotel. Good buffet breakfast, though.

The staff made the difference

Typical business class hotel; clean and well appointed. The room was of nice size the mattresses were very firm (almost to much so.) The continental breakfast was very nice but would have liked more fruit. The front desk staff were A++ in attitude, friendliness and professionalism. They made our stay a pleasure.

This hotel is located at a major hub (421/321/16) so it can be a little confusing. They have a good local map at the front desk.

Never disappointed

This is the third time I've used this hotel when going to the area on business. I have never had any problems and the room and other accommodations were exactly as advertised. The best part of my experience has always been the friendly staff, particularly the staff running the breakfast bar. They were great. So of course I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great for Solo Business Travel

Was surprised there was no workout room at the hotel, but that's only because I didn't read the web site description very closely. Other than that, this was a great place to stay. Free internet and breakfast was exactly what I needed.
