    Wet accommodating - allowed an early check-in since they had a room available. That made my trip much better - I could put my personal items in the room and then proceed to my business meeting.

    Loved the Old Chicago in the parking lot! The restaurant is attached to the hotel so you don’t have to walk outside to the restaurant. Very handy!

    Great stay, no daily maid service

    Our stay was great, the accomodations were as I expected them, the pool room and lounge above were great. House keeping did not come and refresh towels or empty garbages and no one informed us that this was happening when we checked in, so I wasn't expecting that. Just a heads up at check in would have been nice to let us know that no daily maid service was going to be occuring. Otherwise, our stay was great.

    Cold Cold Room

    The room was freezing when we arrived, the thermostat read 48 degrees. This is Iowa in January! We cranked up the heat as high as it could go and had to run the hot water in the shower to heat up the bathroom since there was no hear source in the bathroom. The bathroom was not as clean as we expected, but not so bad we would ask for another room. Husband suggested asking for a different room, but we only stayed overnight so it just didn't seem worth it. The bed was comfortable though, and staff were friendly.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. In spite of Covid restrictions were able to use the hot tub and got breakfast- even though it was pre-packaged.

    Very nice hotel, but pick the right room!

    Check in was fine. Both keycards were finicky and had to be tried multiple times to open the door. Room was well appointed with full size fridge, dishwasher and cookware. Large work-desk, stuffed chair and sofa. Separate bedroom. Old Chicago restaurant attached and will deliver-food was delicious! Also, several other dining options within walking distance. All was very nice, clean and comfortable except: there was a very loud motor that revved and idled repeatedly for several hours (until late at night) right outside our bedroom window. We were on the backside of the hotel, in an even numbered room. Make sure you get an odd-numbered room! Bagged breakfast available at the front desk was sufficient with a fruit bar, individually wrapped pre-purchased muffin and an apple. I would definitely stay again but try a room on the front side of the hotel.
