With the exchange rate very much in my favour this room and hotel was very much a bargain for me.
The American Star ratings are completely different to European and although this is only rated as a 2 Star on Expedia, it is more like a 3 Star rating to a European.
The room was huge. It had a fridge and microwave, the former certainly being useful but with so many great restaurants in the States I wasn't tempted to use the later. Bed was comfortable and choice of hard or soft pillows but I used all of them anyway.
Bathroom very clean and a good shower.
Wireless facility in room or internet access in the business centre on the ground floor is what I used. While I was there they installed an extra computer as the one computer they had couldn't keep up with demand.
Excellent breakfast buffet with cold and hot selection.
Really friendly staff on reception and breakfast supervisor was nice too.
The hotel is well located for a number of good dining establishments and for a movie theatre which was great for me as a solo traveller as I needed somewhere to entertain myself.
I did get a smoking room even though I booked a non-smoking room but I have a feeling this was a fault with hotels.com as the same thing almost happened when I booked into the 2nd hotel of my stay. It may be worth double checking if you book this way. I'm sure I could have changed if I'd asked but I was so exhausted I just wanted to sleep.
