This was a business trip. When I checked in at around 9pm, the desk clerk stated that the water would be turned off at 10am the following morning but for a short period. At 2:00, I started getting ready for work, the water still wasn't on. I called the front desk and they stated that the water would be on... More

This is a beautiful, very clean, and comfortable hotel. I attended a conference which went off almost flawlessly. The only negative I could even mention was they seemed short handed, as the sweet girl trying to handle the coffee bar was so covered up they had to close it down for about half an hour so she could cover for...

The hotel was in a very nice area, plenty of amenities nearby. The big atrium was attractive and our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and good-sized bathroom that had lots of counter space. Upon check-in, there was confusion about our room rate including breakfast which was resolved. There were tons of kids running around, evidently there was a... More

When you walk into the hotel with it's grand interior with waterfalls and glass elevators, you probably expect a pretty elaborate room to stay with modern furniture. Well, not here. The rooms were pretty average with furniture and decor that scream outdated. The room was just dark and bland. Smelled very musty.

We were in Bowling Green for a conference which was hosted here adjacent to the conference center. The hotel is beautiful inside with tropical plants and waterfalls. My room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Two things I did not like was the fact that I was never able to access the internet from my room (428) and there were bottles... More

Plenty of standard rooms with a nice indoor courtyard. Close to Mammoth Cave National Park, the Corvette museum, and WKU with plenty of restaurants nearby. Breakfast was not included and the internal buffet is pricey. Pet friendly.

Stayed here on a recent business trip. Clean with a helpful staff. Restaurant on site but breakfast doesn't behind until 6:30... so if you have an early start you may want to find something else. There is an airport nearby so there is a bit of background noise. Conveniently located next door to Sloan Convention Center.

I have stay here since 2005 on business and have not been disappointed once with service , food, front desk, laundry service, or the lounge. Make sure you see Jamie in the lounge. He is a mixologist on the cocktails. Best thing, he remembers you the next ime your back and what you drank !
