I thought I was a techie, but what they did was way above any other hotel I've been to. They have this patch panel next to the desk, and adjacent to the TV that takes connections that you can route to the TV, and where you can plug in multiple USB cables and power cords for charging. The room was...

IHG Gold. Have stayed here multiple times for work. Staff and check in employees are very friendly. Breakfast is ok. The rooms are ok. The gym gets negative stars. Needs an upgrade badly. If it is raining, plan on the sound of water pouring out of a clogged second story gutter overflowing and smacking the pavement all night long. Great...

Stayed two days, had a good time. Hot tub was great for unwinding, and not crowded. Good selection for breakfast, but be ON TIME. We got there at 9:25, and had to fight for a piece of ham and toast, as food had already been pulled. S'mores are supposed to be available for roasting every night from 7-10, but when...
