My experience at this hotel falls comfortably in the middle of the spectrum, warranting a 3/5 rating. While it didn't dazzle, it also managed to avoid major pitfalls. The room, to put it bluntly, was neither outstanding nor horrible. It provided a functional and comfortable space without any particular frills or noteworthy features. It served its purpose, offering a decent place to rest without leaving a lasting impression. The front desk staff were cordial and professional, but were likewise unremarkable. The gym, on the other hand, left much to be desired in terms of space. It was undeniably cramped, making it less than ideal for those who prefer a more spacious workout environment. Despite its limitations, it was tolerable, allowing guests to squeeze in a workout when necessary. As for breakfast, my meal voucher allowed me to sample the offerings. The food was serviceable, providing a decent start to the day, but it didn't leave a lasting impression. It was more functional than extraordinary, catering to basic tastes rather than offering a culinary adventure. In conclusion, this hotel provides a middle-of-the-road experience. The room meets basic expectations without standing out, and the gym, while cramped, is workable. The cordial and professional front desk staff add a positive note to the stay. A 3/5 rating reflects the overall neutral impression – not extraordinary, but certainly not disappointing either.

This hotel sits right above a major highway and although i was on the fifth floor, it was noisy. I need peace and quiet in order to sleep. I almost left the hotel the second day, but they were able to move me to another room near the parking garage, which was dramatically LESS noisy. However, the room smelled like car fumes. Service and cleanliness and people were all mice but the only reason I stayed was because it was close to where i had to work that week very early in the mornings. Otherwise, I would not go back to this hotel.
