The hotel has a convenient parking garage to securely park your vehicle. We were greeted in a warm friendly manner by the front desk personnel. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel offers a convenient shuttle service to most downtown destinations. The breakfast was more than adequate and was managed with skill and precision. I will stay here again.

I have nothing but good things to say. Danny really gets what hospitality is about. Before arrival he emailed me everything I needed to know, including tips how to save money on getting there. He didn't have to do that. I finally arrive, I felt welcomed as ihg platinum, and I got a nice upgrade. The room was spotless. The housekeeper is an all star. I had room 705 I think, near the elevator. The swan on the bed was a nice touch) I loved the bed and slept like I was dead! This place is great if you're going to United as they'll even drive you there for free! Thank you, Danny and team, for a wonderful stay! - Sonya
