Great place!
Great place, hip and friendly, competent front desk employees. The restaurant is hip and the staff is friendly but the food & service needs some help. Also super loud with the ball game in the small space.

Remodeled, but not improved.
I'm a long time fan of this property, but preferred it as a Holiday Inn Express. The revamped restaurant/game room, as well as the adjacent fire pits, seem geared to millennials (I'm 65). Now breakfast is relatively expensive and time consuming, whereas before it was self-serve and free. The numerous photos of extreme sports all over the guest room walls also left me cold.

Unacceptable
Overbooking after having booked it 8 months in advance and prepayed! We needed to look for another Hotel during Holiday season at 21h with children! unbelievable. No email, call or anythingafter that. I even had to call myself to receive the refund!

No mention during reservation process that lounge and bar area were undergoing renovation and not available for business. My room was located near the backside of the hotel with a view of a large dumpster and construction staging area
