Upon arrival, we found the front desk personnel to be very friendly and helpful. Our stay started off great when we were told we could store our luggage at the hotel when we arrived long before check-in. The room we stayed in on the sixth floor was small but quiet and spotless. The bed was very comfortable and they had both soft and hard pillows on the bed which were marked on the pillow cases. We slept great! I've read reviews criticizing the breakfast and crowds but I thought they did a great job of replenishing the food and cleaning up. There were at least six containers of coffee, both bacon and sausage, small pre-made omelets, pancakes, cinnamon buns, danish, yogurt, milk, OJ, fresh fruit and more. I think that is a great free breakfast and makes it worth dealing with the crowds! As for the crowds, it wasn't any more crowded than other hotels that offer free breakfasts - It's all about the timing. One time, I ate in the comfortable chairs in the lobby as the breakfast area was full. The second day, there were four open tables in the breakfast room. Another plus is the computers with printer readily available in the lobby. The toner was running out and the gentleman at the front desk immediately got a new toner so we could print tickets. Now, to give a fair review, I will mention the negative things. It takes a long time to get an elevator in the morning. Fortunately, being on the sixth floor, we could use the steps. Unfortunately, some time during the night or early morning, they painted the door to the steps and didn't put up a "Wet Paint" sign and my son ended up with paint on his pants from brushing up against it and we had paint all over our hands. I mentioned it at the front desk at check-out and, hopefully, they put up a sign for others. Also, because of the room being so small, it is hard eating in the room (if the breakfast room and lobby are full).
