Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day I was curious to see what kind of choices this hotel would have and I was pleasantly surprised to find several choices which included cereal, waffles and fruit. This hotel also had I nice eating area with a tv. It was a great way to start the day.

Overall I was satisfied with my stay as it served its purpose for a business trip. But I would prefer to stay somewhere else if I was on a family trip. The biggest reason why is the slow Wi-Fi. It was an issue for me being on a business trip and it would have been worst having my wife and... More
