Room was very nice. Comfy beds, clean, etc. Breakfast in the dining room - not good. Eggs and hash browns very greasy. Disappointing.

Don't stay at that hotel in warm weather

Our room was located on the second floor just above some type of generator or air conditioning system. It was plus 90 F outside, meaning the AC was constantly on. However, unlike in other hotels where the room unit kicks in, every 5-10 mins a huge generator kicked in as well. Needless to say that we (and probably many other guests) did not get much sleep because of the noise and vibrations. I have never experienced anything like that before and I am traveling quit a bit. Won't stay there ever again. I rarely write a review, but I felt that I had to write this one to warn others.

Great stay!

Pros: The room was nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Work out room was small but had the equipment I wanted.
Cons: I wish there would have been a small continental breakfast.
