I've come to expect a certain quality at hotels at this level, but this one exceeded my expectations. From the nice wood decor of the lobby to the elegant light sconces on the wall facing the front desk, with a neat and orderly snack-and-toiletries set up by the desk and cookies and lemonade out for the sampling, check in was smooth. The room was perfect size even before we discovered the unexpected complimentary upgrade to a suite with its adjoining room up a small private staircase. The in-room fridge was larger than I usually see in a hotel room, plenty of space to hold more than a few snacks. Shower was in good shape and drained properly (just needs a soap dish or shelving to put your items as you bathe since the rim was narrow). The breakfast the next morning was also more than I expected, with two kinds of waffle batter and two different types of waffle presses, a variety of fruits and yogurts, real scrambled and hard boiled eggs, even a nice toppings bar with dried fruits and candies to satisfy both a sugar-happy kid and a health-conscious adult.
Do be advised that if the shuttle is sheltering in the short little overhang area outside the front door, you will not have a place to pull up to the door and unload for check-in that is roofed over for protection from the elements. This wasn't a problem for us with the nice summer weather but I could see it being a concern in rain or snow. There's no alternative parking space marked for pulling into when checking in, so you may not be able to park by the door depending on how full the rest of the lot is. less
