Staff was very helpful, we asked them a lot of questions about the area. Rooms were very nice. The beds were the most comfortable. The shuttle service was the most helpful to us. Breakfast was nice and the waiter was most friendly.
We booked this hotel for a Soccer Tournaments near Keystone Road soccer fields - about 10-12 minutes drive. The trouble with this “great” Location is getting out of parking lot to turn LEFT or trying to cross the street during a busy time. All small difficulties in my mind - still only a 15 minute walk to downtown area bars and sites. For us - it was great using the hotel shuttle to get to and from downtown - especially Cherry Republic store.
The shuttle driver was very nice - and on time dropping and picking us up...so visit the downtown area while staying here.
