Beautiful hotel Everything I needed in my room, cozy bed, and very clean There is a bar on site, but I didn’t use it

The less than exceptional reading is because the hotel is located right next to the highway The roar of traffic, sirens, loud motorcycles, and 18 wheelers on their jake brakes, plus trash pick up at 4 AM, made for a less than great stay I recommend staying here, but if you’re not used to the NJ noise, choose an odd numbered room for the quietest side of the building

I shared this experience with my soon to be hubby I enjoyed our stay there It was just as amazing as it was when we were there three months ago

I love it The whirlpool is amazing I feel so relaxed when I get out I must say the make to order breakfast is through the roof The breakfast is absolutely delicious Thank u for our incredible stay The staff is very accommodating to our needs

Purusha Jackson-Cox

Enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel Parking was no problem and location was just off major parkway for easy access to I-95 For us, we were just where we needed to be to get to Iselin and Monroe Twp,quickly

Hotel had large rooms, hot fresh breakfast, bar and dining area ,pool and fitness room Great value for the price The only thing I did not like was you were given a coupon for breakfast Not sure why, but once you handed it in I guess you could not go back for seconds My kids all eat at different times so this was just a bit annoying but not a big problem Vending machines and ice machines were on our floor, which was the 4th floor Snacks and drinks were also for sale, near check in

Room was nice and clean, staff was friendly! breakfast was hot and really good-But hallways smelled like smoke/weed- the pool was closed without notice and we took our kids purposely to this location for the indoor pool…-beware the double queen rooms were not queens, they’re full beds!

Kara Murren Effrig

I needed a one night stay for me and my 3yr old Specifically was looking for a hotel with an indoor pool Upon making my reservation (a week prior) to my stay I asked if the pool was open and was told YES

So booked the room About 3 days prior to my arrival I called again to confirm the pool being open and again was told YES The day I arrived (I live 35hr away) im checking in and ask about the pool again and was now told NO THE POOL WAS TEMP CLOSED! I was highly disappointed since i was told twice it was open So I went along with the reservation anyway My room was facing the front of the hotel which was noisy because of the highway Make sure to ask for a room in the back of the hotelLater in the night my toilet wouldn’t stop running so called the front desk and they were going to come check My brother in law who was there at the time decided to check himself and took the tank lid off THERE WAS A SYRINGE IN THE TOILET TANK! YES A SYRINGE! When the staff came to my room the guy did remove it for me but still Gross! So when checking out I complained about both situations and the nice hotel manager gave me $50 off my room rate She also said to contact her before a future stay and she was give me a discount But will I go back? Probably notHot breakfast was ok Closes early though (930am) Coffee was awful!

The hotel is huge and used to be gorgeous but now it looks outdatedIf you choose a room with breakfast you will be not wrong 😉Outdoor pool is great

  Continental breakfast has usual Hilton options  (scrambled eggs,  bacon,  breakfast potato) with some restaurant’s touch (you supposed to use vouchers)The territory around the hotel is nice but needs a little bit more attentionOverall it was a good stay  My kids enjoyed weekends there

J Monique C

I wonder if this place was nice before COVID because now the place gives an outdated vibe It has a pool, business center, plenty of conference space and a restaurant on site Yet, nothing made me feel like I was in for a treat including the staff who barely recognized my diamond status

They were less than warm in their welcome Maybe they were tired because it was a holiday weekend and bus load of kids checked in? At least the bed was comfortable and the room was clean

Kristina Mereigh

This double tree hotel was a great disappointment I am a Hilton Gold honors member and had never been to a Hilton property that was so outdated and unclean We booked this location for an anniversary staycation for two nights and checked out after night one because of how gross it was

We had to stay night one because no other hotels in the area could take us that late at night We booked a room with patio walk out to the pool The doors were incredibly hard to open, the patio curtains were so filthy and dusty, I needed to go and buy allergy medicine The patio windows were so streaky and dusty, you couldn’t see through them The air in the hotel was musty The bathroom still had hair in it and it was so small you could barely move around One of the front desk staff was so rude, I was appalled Ive never been treated that way in a Hilton property before The hallways looked like they had never been vacuumed and the ice machine was so gross, we went out to buy ice for our water bottlesDark, musty and outdated Highly don’t recommendThe grounds are the only saving grace The outside is pretty but the pool fills up quickly and the lounge chairs are incredibly limited so if you want one for your family, secure it before 9am There are only like 4 of them so it feels like hunger games for them

Wayne and his staff are amazing! The hotel is easily accessible for many major roads in the area When you arrive you are greeted by a friendly face and welcomed into a clean comfortable hotel We stayed there every weekend for over 2 months and we had no complaints about any of the rooms we were in during our stays

Any special request placed on the app were always in place when we arrived We were so happy with the hotel that our son is now using it for his block of rooms for his wedding Keep up the great work!

Nancy McNamara

We were booked as a guest for a wedding Having arrived from out of state, the front desk assisted in getting us into a room before the actual check-in time Unfortunately, although the room was vacated, it had not yet been cleaned

A quick call to the front desk got us immediately moved to another room The room was spacious and very comfortable The only drawback is that the rooms seem to have “mood” lighting You know, for evenings and good rest It was incredibly difficult to apply make-up in such dim lighting A mirror by the window or a bright bathroom light would have made a big difference! Being so close to a wedding venue, they should remember people get dressed there, not just sleep

BED BUGS BED BUGS BED

BUGS I’m stating that right up front so anyone skimming the reviews sees it immediatelyWe stayed here two nights for a wedding over the 2022 Memorial Day weekend We did not notice anything immediately, but as my wife got ready to go to bed she found one mature bed bug Not having had interactions with the pest before, she thought it was a tick, which is gross, but doesn’t usually indicate an infestation I had been visiting with friends and came back to the room a half hour later and immediately realized that it was much worse than that Checking the corners of the bed, we confirmed that it was indeed a bed bug infestation and had likely been that way for some time since there were examples spanning the life cycle chart of bed bugs Needless to say, we immediately vacated the roomTo be fair, the staff at the hotel was somewhat accommodating They immediately gave us a new room and comped our entire stay However, they did not offer any preventative measures, did not do anything to ensure the new room (which was on the same floor) was not also infested, and were not able to even advise me on their standard sanitation practices Upon inspection, our new room was clean and we advised numerous friends staying in the hotel to check their rooms, which yielded no further bug findingsOver the course of the weekend, we walked past the room multiple times to see if anyone else was staying in the room or if they were cleaning the room or anything at all Nothing No precautions were made to ensure that the infestation wasn’t spreading A simple Google search shows that bed bugs can and will travel between rooms, so this was highly concerningAlmost a month later, despite taking extensive precautions, I live in fear that we brought the pests home with us since they can live for months without feeding (gross) I would happily pay the cost of the hotel stay in exchange for peace of mind, so while the comping of the room was appreciated, in my opinion it is entirely inadequate Do betterSuffice to say, we will not be staying at this hotel ever again, and furthermore will not be patronizing any Fairfield hotels in the future Please heed this warning and stay somewhere else – there are plenty of other hotels in the area

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel They compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t be disappointedRooms are clean and so is the lobby and hotel overall I’ve stayed at a number of hotels in the area and the Heldrich is one of the nicest One of the great things about this hotel is it’s surrounded by a lot of restaurants You can literally walk across the street and be at a number of fine dining restaurants within 40 feet of the hotel doors It simply makes life easier if you are visiting in the area Hotel management is very nice and accommodating as well

Grisel Johnson

We were traveling from out of town and stayed here for a night Room was very big and spacious No complaints except that room service did not come unless I requested a clean

Also I stepped on a pin needle?! I let the cleaning room service know and she saw it her self She plainly said we clean the carpet when we vacuum but we don’t always guarantee that everything comes up! They are so lucky my 5 year old or crawling 11 month old did not get stuck with it…or else there would be a lawsuit pending! Manager was nice to offer us free breakfast but unfortunately our flight was leaving at 3am and couldn’t accept his offer Management was suppose to get back with us about the incident and still haven’t heard back I would not recommend this hotel not very professional at all

Bhaumik Parekh

We had the worst experience staying at this hotel! I would not recommend it to anybody as their staff service is worst than a motel We paid $500 for 2 nights that is way expensive than any 3-4 stars hotel considering that we will also get good service from the staff for the price that we paid but that was not the case We asked for microwave and they told us we will be charged $25 for it, first of all which good hotel charges for microwave

We were ready to pay for it at the end but turned out they did not even have one in their inventory!We asked for extra comforter as I was feeling too cold and their thermostat was also not working to set the temperature, they did not give extra comforter as well We kept waiting but staff did not provide anything The phone was also not working from room so every time for any room service we had to go all the way down ourselvesWorst place to stay , please do not waste your money here as we already wasted ours!

Rhonda Wheeler Courson

The staff was friendly and helpful We were far away from home and needed shuttle service, Uber service, and food delivery The hotel staff helped me with all of it

Also, we were in town to take my daughter to a special hospital, but because of the time of the appointment, we were going to have to check out, carry our luggage with us to the hospital, and then come back and wait in the hotel lobby for about 3 hours before our shuttle arrived When we came down for the free breakfast (which was wonderful), I asked the guy at the front desk if it would be alright for us to stay in the lobby all afternoon He told me he would schedule us for late check out, which allowed us to leave our luggage in the room, eat lunch there, and only have a 45 minute wait in the lobby It worked out perfectly! Plus, the room was very nice We also used the fitness center and bought lots of snacks and drinks from their little store I’m so thankful we stayed here!

Barbara Perez

Here on business w my husband It’s utilitarian and serves it’s purpose for business travel, not luxury or vacay

Breakfast is nothing to write home about, they basically stop refills quarter to 9 so be early It was fine until the cleaning lady asked me 3 times BEFORE the noon check-out deadline if I was leaving, twice by knocking on my door! Highly annoying, since I was not there past noon! It was an OK 3 stars at most stay

B Turcz

I believe in giving places second chances And this Hampton in North Brunswick/New Brunswick was so much better the second time around The young lady at the front desk, Sam, is a “world class” professional

She spoke kindly, accurately, and sincerely to me and my girlfriend as we checked in Sam told us about breakfast, she informed us that the pool was open (despite a sign saying it was closed) and, even got us towels and walked us to the pool door to let us go inThe room was very nice too Bed was comfy, bathroom had enough towels for two people to shower off after a dip in the pool Television remote worked and the air conditioning unit was easy to control and understandAs a Hilton Honors (silver) I was very happy with this hotel And despite one bad previous experience, I believe this place redeemed itself with better customer service Thanks again to Sam at the front desk, you are a superstar front desk receptionist!

The team at check in was very niceThe suite room was spacious and clean It had a balcony as well

I had dinner at the Ruby Tuesday that’s attached and was able to charge to the room The room charge slip indicates you could do room service as well and had a $2 charge for thatThe view from the room was nice right at twilightThe line for breakfast was a little bit long but I think it was because I went down at the most premium time There were several team members who came to pitch in and help and they were all very nice

Joseph B

Check in was fast and simple Room clean, spacious and well put together Does show its age

Pool was nice, does need better lighting and a good cleaning, but for the price and property expectations it gets the job done Morning breakfast spread is non existent Pre packaged muffins in 2 flavors I’d stay again but keep in mind just another hotel finding a quick exit to save money on breakfast rather take care of the paying customers

Jenifer Behrens

We stayed here for 4 nights for my sons baseball tournament From the time I called to make reservations to the time we left everyone was absolutey amazing We needed extra towels and they were super quick with gettinfthem to us

The staff was very warm and inviting Our room was amazing very clean beds and pillows were surprisingly comfortable I want to say one staff member needs a special shout out and that would be Inezshe truly went above and beyond and ALWAYS had a smile on her face She is the absolute sweetest Marriott I hope you see this because Inez is a special employee that you are very lucky to have If we are ever in the area we absolutely will be staying here againshe truly made our stay wonderful I cannot thank you enough I absolutey recomend this hotel The only downside is the bistro is not open on the weekends and have a limited menu for now HOWEVER the hotel does put out a variety of items on weekend so you can have a quick grab and go The young lady that made our items was wonderful My son accidentally dropped his bacon egg and cheese bagel on the floor and she quickly said let me make him a new one She did not have to do that but she did Our stay was wonderful Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making our stay a great one

Joelle Romano

We arrived and was given a room that upon first entry was clean and it appeared everything was fine The room happened to be on the side with a lot of street traffic, which made sleeping the first night completely impossible That next morning, we realized the a/c didn’t work properly and we had an unwanted “guest” (rhymes with coach!) in our bathroom

We spoke with Amanda at the front desk and she was able to move us to the opposite side of the hotel room we were in THAT room was also clean, a/c worked and sleep that night was great! Breakfast selection was nice Amanda is the reason I’m able to give this hotel a better rating than I would have if we stayed in the room we were given

Thallis Miranda

We were very disappointed, I have never left a bad review in any of the dozens of hotels I’ve stayed through the country or world Lights weren’t working, service at front desk neglected to take requests Other customer complaining constantly, one gentleman checked in his room and small daughter to find blood stains on bed sheets

Last time we stayed there we loved it (about 2 years ago) seems like no updates have been done at all since, neither has any repairs There was puke in the entrance sink to the room The paper towel at the lobby men’s bathroom was empty for all 4 days we stayed there Breakfast was dry and cold, attendant didn’t care much when advised about breakfast essentials such as cups and food ran out We paid the same price for what we could’ve paid staying in Manhattan Unfortunately we will not be recommending this hotel neither will we be returning again

Mario Jones

The rooms in this place are extremely out dated and unsanitary However the ladies at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful, that’s the reason why I gave this place at least (2) star’s The breakfast was non existent, no juice only water, nothing but cereal and bread, a few old stale bagels and boiled eggs

We used to love this place, but I can’t imagine recommending this place any longer to my company HR department when our travelers fly into liberty airport

This hotel is close to Cape Liberty for cruising Only 30 minute drive Have stayed here one time prior years ago

The entire hotel has been renovated and looks beautiful Prices are competitive The hot breakfast was great, so many choices from waffles to oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, and more The restaurant in the hotel is VERY pricey even for everyday items Overall a great stay!

L. L.

Very clean and spacious rooms However, service was lacking – specifically asked for the room to be cleaned and no one cleaned it Also had a kettle in the room with no base

When asked, they told us they would check tomorrow Then we had to ask again the next day to follow up and they told us they didn’t have kettles in the rooms anymore so it shouldn’t be thereBreakfast is subpar and does not vary – would be improved with more fruit options and reduction in processed foods

For the record, I am a Best Western Diamond member, and I’ve probably stayed at fifty or more different Best Western Hotels I love giving good reviews, and I hate giving bad ones, which I have done My philosophy is to be honest when the emperor has no clothes

This is a good review of The Hub Murray Hill, BW Premier Collection, Address: 535 Central Ave, New Providence, NJ 07974I stayed here for two nights in late March 2022, for the first time This is a hotel in transition from a Best Western hotel to what is now called a boutique hotel There are many obvious upgrades and a couple of hiccups that need to be adjusted Here’s the key thing, management (Mishko) is very responsive to guest needs Checking in and out was easy-peasy and parking was plentifulThe important stuff My room was spacious with a king-sized bed The mattress was delightful, the pillows exquisite, and the bed linen was excellent The Samsung TV was larger and of better quality than any in any BW hotel I’ve been to The channel selection was a bit better than average The heating was excellent And the room was set up for the latest technology, including a wireless charger HICCUP: There was no safe in my roomThe bathroom and shower were commodious, although, as is the new BW style, there was a need for more shelf space on the vanity HICCUP: The shower needed one or two bars for safety purposes Sometimes people get dizzy and need something to grab HICCUP: The was no place to hang a towel for reuseI enjoyed the coffee in the nicely appointed lobby I was able to comfortably socialize with friends There was also a library of books and a small business center HICCUP: The first two times I went for coffee the urn was emptyThe area is pleasant and there are many fine places to dine We enjoyed breakfast one morning at the Prestige Diner, ask for Gabriel and on the second morning, we picked up bagels at the Bagel Café and ate them in the lobby We also had sandwiches from the nearby Jersey Mike’s that were quite goodI recommend this hotel, without reservations, and I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I didNOTE: I rated this hotel with 4 stars Given the opportunity, my ratings would be 45 Stars

Mihir Patel

We are very disappointed in this property, honestly they should loose their Hyatt Regency name We checked in for two nights for a local wedding, the sheets on our king size bed had stains and hairs in it When we asked for our sheets to be changed, the night manager felt like she was accusing us, questioning when we checked in and why we didn’t noticed it earlier

I had to explain to her we just pulled the sheets back prior to going to bed but the fact I had to justify myself was frustrating We didn’t ask for any special accommodations, we just asked for new sheets They then explained how housekeeping is closed and they had to find someone to change the sheets Additionally, all the furniture had stains and dust on it, we had to put towels and clean sheets down to feel comfortable even sitting on it Looks like they owners recently renovated the lobby but decided to keep the rooms looking like they’re from the 1980s The hotel rooms are in rough shape, show their age, and unsanitary I wouldn’t recommend staying here, there are much better options locally for the same priceThe only good thing about the hotel is that the front desk and bar staff were kind But the rooms at this hotel are well below the Hyatt Regency standard

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay They compare thousands of hotel sites and usually will have rooms much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This resort is one of the best in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely will love it I’m sure!Only one night, but it was very enjoyable No hassle check in Clean room with super comfy bed Great venue for our business meeting Catering was excellent Would go there again

B Reveau

Excellent Super-clean room, not noisy except for a small amount of noise from traffic outside, kind staff at check-in Pool very nice, jacuzzi quite spacious and definitely hot enough to relax but a tad bit hotter would be even better

Hours of pool and jacuzzi were great Nice that they put the on/off button for the jacuzzi jets inside the jacuzzi itself Yes, there is a parking fee but it is fair Great job

Richard Turcsik

The rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable I had a room on the lower level facing the Garden State Parkway but thanks to the sound proof windows I could not hear the traffic The staff was great, especially Sebastian

The only downsides were that there is not a restaurant in the hotel, although they have a kiosk in the morning that sells coffee and light breakfast items However, there is an ACME within walking distance and tons of great restaurants just minutes away Try the Galloping Hill Inn in Union for an excellent hot dog! My only other downside was that they only clean the rooms and make the beds if you give them 24 hour notice that you would like your room cleaned

Thank you for honoring my request for late check-in My first room assignment was cancelled due to heavy smoke odor in hallway Front desk clerk made every attempt to accommodate

Thank you The fabric covered headboard in the second room assignment was mysteriously stained Please replace the mysteriously stained headboards It could cause the imagination to run wild Also, the top bed sheet reeked of fragrance very odd Since I’m highly sensitive to fragrances, this experience resulted in restless sleep and a severe migraine Due to my exhaustion level both at check-in and checkout, I had nothing else to spend Overall my quality of stay was voided mainly due to the fragrance issue Although a bit cramped, it wasn’t a huge issue for me Thank you Kenilworth Inn

Stayed one night before flying out of Newark Airport, using the fly and 7 day park package Very friendly staff at both check in and check out The room was not fancy, but relatively large and quite clean

Lots of parking on site, and the staff were efficient in ordering a complimentary Lyft to the airport (instead of a shuttle, as the driver was off shift) The coffee maker in the room was broken, but even that was a fairly positive experience as they had maintenance there within a few minutes to swap it out!

Good hotel Clean and polite staff, housekeeping comes regularly to check if you need anything The housekeeping staff is so sweet

The hotel is also in a good area and they have designated quiet hours so you don’t have to deal with noisy neighbors when you’re trying to sleep There was also excellent lighting from the windows in our room so it made our days in the hotel a lot more bearable

Nice hotel for the money Easily accessible from the parkway Ample parking

I had a two-double bed suit The front parlor has a mini fridge, microwave wet bar, TV and sofa-bed The bathroom is a little dated but good water pressure and clean Pool was on the smaller size They have a full bar and you can order appetizers Nice lounge areas to mingle Great buffet breakfast which takes sanitary and health precautions into account Jennifer who assisted us at the main desk was awesome I used the App to check-in and it was great I was able to select my room and use my phone as my room key One of the downfalls of the App they do not tell you that you need to visit the front desk to get passes to utilize some of the amenities of the hotel This is a family friendly hotel

We booked our room through a secondary app that Embassy Suites works with, and they somehow lost the room we booked (two rooms that were combined with double beds and a pull out couch) and switched it with a single KingAfter a little arguing and showing proof of the confirmation of our room, the front desk was able to find an available room close to what we ordered & paid for And the staff was being friendly and helpful during the dilemma/confusion

So I would recommend that if you book a reservation through a secondary travel app–ALWAYS call up the particular hotel immediately after you obtain your confirmation from the secondary app to ensure that your reservation matches what Embassy Suites received from the travel app That way you can avoid what we went through before you arriveThat said, the room was clean as was the entire public spaces The breakfast comps (a coupon per person/per overnight stay) were handed over via a coupon We were also handed a complimentary ‘welcome drink’ for the evening for every adult in our reservation who was 21+ but none of us used itThe breakfast in the morning was well organized, ample beverage choices (coffee, tea, milk, juices) with a fresh fruit section, cereal to choose from, scratch-made pancakes and omelettes (I would recommend) & french toast (needs to be improved) with fried potatoes and your choice of breakfast meats–either bacon or sausage (bacon was paper thin and very salty, so maybe the sausage was a better choice, but we all had the bacon)Anyhow, the room was comfortable and clean You can change the temperature to fit your preference The bathroom was a good size and there was an additional sink in the room with the beds as well a wet bar sink in the lounge area of our room The lounge area was a little on the small size but workableI’d say that this room was a bit overpriced in comparison to where I’ve stayed at in prior trips at different hotels (those have larger rooms & larger lounge areas in the rooms), but overall it was okay for a single night’s stayPrice point to what we received: I personally would stay at one of the other hotel chains that I’m alluding to over this one, especially since the main reason we chose this location was for the pool (which was closed due to Covid restrictions) So for all intensive purposes, we were in a smaller room than what I know we could have stayed at for about 100 dollars less with similar breakfast deals but the other chains lack the displayed ambiance you’re greeted and surrounded by when you enter into this hotel’s lobby & public areas

The breakfast was delicious! Loved the omelets! The main foyer area was beautiful (bravo to the architect) If you have to spend a few days here you would enjoy sitting by the fountain or taking a leisurely walk along the pondOur room was clean and spacious, but we did have to change it upon arrival due to a small leak in the bathroom

The staff was pleasant and friendly, and a special thank-you to Heraldo who was very kind and helped us with our room changeOverall it was a very enjoyable experience and I highly recommend this hotel

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This website will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t regret itThis hotel location was excellent!! You had a Walmart extremely close by two restaurants and the room was absolutely clean and modern!! We had so much space despite sharing a room as a family! It met our needs to sleep shower and go on about our next stop the Statue of Liberty!! If you’re traveling with the family I would definitely recommend this place! My husband was the only person who took advantage of the free breakfast because we were running late but it was all worth it!! If you need to get to the Statue Liberty from Philly stay here you will not regret it!!

I have been staying at Hilton since past 7-8 years and this was the worst experience ever Starting from the check-in – We were not greeted with happy faces at all We had total of 6 rooms for the week so total around like 15-16 nights since i had used points for some rooms and paid for the other

We had a baby shower event nearby and booked the rooms for my guests and my family but they were also utterly disappointed by the overall experience The major concern was the provision of the housekeeping service and bath/hand towels We had to literally beg for towels every few hours since they would not give us the number of towels we requested We could see they have enough towels at the back of the reception but still would not give us that It literally felt like they were discriminating towards my brown skin They would not provide housekeeping the same day even if we asked for it in the morning I have been staying at Hiltons since the beginning of Pandemic but never had such experience anywhere else I had options nearby to book my rooms for the baby shower but chose this since I had previously stayed at this property couple of times They had like 4-5 front desk people sitting doing nothing during the work hours They should instead hire more house keepers I really hope Hilton will take some acceptable action towards the customer service at this particular property

The place is very clean, modern and well maintained The staff was accommodating and friendly The room was really nice and spacious but cozy

Bathroom amenities were Paul Mitchel and I greatly appreciated those There was a great variety of breakfast foods available in the morning which was wonderful This hotel got all the details right even down to the smallest of details! There is also a delicious smelling restaurant right across the street that sadly I didn’t get to try but the next time I am out here I will absolutely be looking forward to it!

Clean, welcoming and comfortable! Stayed a few days while in town for a wedding Despite our wild family lol the staff was more than hospitable, they were stellar! The breakfast bar was great! And the staff who were manning the breakfast bar were on top of everything Super friendly and helpful, they kept it stocked and above all, clean!!! Highly recommend!

This was the worst hotel I have stayed at We had booked 50 plus rooms for two nights and the service was the worst we have ever seen and this is coming from someone who works in the hotel industry We had booked a meeting room for all the people who were staying in the hotel and our count for people attending went up to 80 therefore; she told us to use the lobby

The hotel has a bar but on purpose they don’t open it so they can charge people to have a bar open The bartender the hotel gave us had no bartending experience as he didn’t know how to make a martini or a Moscow mule He was supposed to be there from 5:30 to 10:30 and he was missing in action from 7:30 onward When I went to inquire, he was hiding in the back and said if he wanted noise he would work in a club One of the guests (who was not affiliated with us) said I know people and you can get fired and he ran with that saying we threatened himThe GM, the next day said I need to speak to you and we didn’t tip the bartender She claims she had to comp $5,000 worth of room revenue which is a lie because we had occupied 60 rooms Why would you put other guest in the middle of all the rooms At the end of the night when we came back from our event we decided to go to Tap house 2020 and we were told that the hotel called and said we were too rowdy and not to accept our wedding block I came back to the hotel and when we confronted the GM Melinda, she denied it When my nephew went up to speak to the front desk about why they called the tap house 2020, the GM came out and said I am tired of everyone coming and asking me questions and she is calling the cops Are you serious, the hotel does not know how to handle a large crowd The hotel should not host any wedding room block You can’t threaten to call the police when someone is asking question and you don’t feel like answering The GM and the staff ruined our happy day and upset the bride and the groom
