Nice and clean, but odd location
The hotel and rooms were nice and clean. Breakfast was as expected. When we arrived, we were told the pool was out of service. Normally that would be a deal breaker, with two children, but we didn't have time to enjoy it anyways. The location of the hotel was definitely different and unexpected. At first we felt like we were at some secret government start up tech company building, and I never really got over that uneasy feeling.

This is my home away from home.I know so many people here by now. A special shout out this time to the host and hostess for the breakfast bar. Amal and the man who works week-ends always go out of their way to make sure your wish is their demand!

Service excellent, except Keirig never worked. Lost and Found did an amazing job recovering stuff I left behind. Many thanks.

Long Business trip
Was at the hotel for a week and had a great time the staff is very friendly and was able to accommodate me in a way that would be something you would not ask a hotel to do. I had asked for Windex and paper towels and the next day they were sitting on the front desk for me. Most of the amenities, such as bar and restaurant are at the other hotel that joins to each other but no big deal. The area is very nice and all by its self. To go to any other restaurants and bars or even stores you have to drive to because the hotel is in the middle of no where, but is nice cause it is quiet there. I know I will be returning there in the future and will definitely stay here. Rooms are clean and cleaning service is daily. There is also a laundry room in the hotel for the guest if they need to do laundry.
