Found this hotel by typing Best Western into Sat-Nav, after dark you are unlikely to find it any other way. Location is buried at back of private housing area, though you won't know any of this till leaving in daylight.
Building is striking tribute to concrete and glass, although the design has some merits with the 'outside' glass elevator attached to the end of the building. Some fancy lighting after dark puts colour into relief, but I think this is a kit used in cities everywhere. The elevator will go to underneath carpark, which has very dull lighting, take care parking your vehicle, many walls and pillars to hit.
As always with Best Western, reception staff well attired, polite and efficient. Rooms clean and reasonably well equipped, only 1 English speaking TV channel but this is the same elsewhere. No chance of walking out to find local restaurants, didn't see any on way in and the default house restaurant was acceptable, if deserted.
This is a corporate machine, delegates of two or three conferences milling about but the crowded bar went silent once they had been bussed to eat elsewhere.
Evening meal was fine if unexceptional, bar staff pleasant, breakfast okay, that's it. Our stay would been better if we qualified for corporate discount, but we don't qualify and they don't have to worry about lack of customers in Stuttgart.
In summary, another night and another hotel, acceptable. less
