Clean room. Spacious. Nice view. Comfortable bed. Quiet (unless others are letting doors slam). A bit dated. “All day dining” means nothing from 2-5 except you can buy nuts or chips from behind registration. We were told by an employee, “We don’t open the bar or market unless there is an event during the weekdays.” But we were there on a Saturday. Very nice server at breakfast. Good parking.

Everything was great! The only factor that was slightly nasty was the shower water when it was first turned on. It was brownish for a few seconds. But it’s understandable because hotels haven’t been doing so well since the pandemic, so there’s likely rooms that haven’t been in use for a long period of time.
