I am on the last night of my 5 night stay at this property. From the time I checked in, I was impressed with the incredible friendliness of the staff. The front desk agents are phenomenal - always a kind word, an offer to help, always showing genuine concern to make sure I'm enjoying my stay. The breakfast each day is very good (always an egg-dish, as well as a meat and another hot item, in addition to oatmeal, cereal and all the other breakfast offerings you could ask for), and quite well-attended by the breakfast staff. I have not once seen things untidy or empty - the staff is right on top of things and pleasant as well.
The evening social hour Monday - Thursday is more than you could ask for. I don't drink alcohol, but they had a great and plentiful selection of wines and craft beers, in addition to non-alcoholic offerings. Additionally, there is always plentiful hot food, salads, soups and more. And like morning, a super nice and on-the-ball staff attending.
The hotel itself, from what I understand, is in the planning stages of a renovation, and it will be a good improvement. The hall areas are a bit worn, but the rooms themselves are spotless and only showing a little wear - certainly not a drawback. Housekeeping always did a good job of accommodating my work schedule.
I found the bed to be quite comfortable as well. And the shower was hot and powerful.
The hotel is convenient to a huge and very nice shopping mall and other shopping. Convenient to highways.
The location of this hotel is great for my travel to the area. The rooms are large and the complimentary breakfast is very nice. It could use some updating in some areas - wallpaper could be replaced as could carpeting by Elevator Car 1. But, the rooms and other public areas are kept clean and the staff I have found to be very accommodating. If you have trouble sleeping or are sensitive to noise, be sure to request a room away from the Thruway, which has an enormous amount of truck traffic. Even just on the other side of the hallway, overlooking the courtyard, is much, much quieter.
