No, we were not greeted as priority club members. Don't think they cared.
No, there was not much parking. We were lucky to squeeze into a space in their dark parking lot. It didn't seem like they were at full occupancy.
No, we were not told how to get to our room (which turned out to be confusing in the dark, outside with no clear signs.) We requested an inside room but weren't given one & wasn't told that our room was outside.
No, the room was not clean. The floors were extremely sticky & my white socks (which kept sticking to the carpet) turned so black I had to throw it away. Plus, the base of the shower had mold under the sealants. Not sure it's sealed.
No, the floor plan was not great. The light for the vanity area shines straight at the beds with no door in between. So, when I woke up at 6am for my conference both my husband & son had to wake up because there was no way to block the lights. I didn't use the restroom in the middle of the night for that same reason.
No, the breakfast was not good. We stay at many HIE throughout the country. This was the worst. We had to find food elsewhere.
No, the front desk person did not care. When my husband told them that the floors were dirty, she asked "Why? Did you spill?"
We changed our hotel at the last minute (paid at least $50 more) to stay at this hotel, first for the HIE brand and second for the convenience of being near my conference so the boys could sleep in. What a horrible mistake. Definitely not worth the money.
