I wanted to take the wife away for a weekend and let someone else do the work. I had recently upped my game and stayed at a C.P. in Portland, Oregon which was very, very nice. I expected the same from this one so I did not do my normal due diligence in my research.
When we arrived, there seemed to be a ( dare I say ) mold smell BUT that does not mean that is what it actually was. My wife and I thought it might be.
I was greeted as a Platinum member and given an upgrade to a suite. ( Even on using reward nights points ) I wonder if the West Coast IHG's called this place and told them about me. ( Just kidding ) As I am learning in my travels across the U.S., the west coast IHG's are not big on upgrades.
This hotel has a HUGE lobby with the swimming pool and hot tub/jacuzzi in the middle of the hotel inside. ( Maybe that was the smell? )
The exercise room was adjacent to the pool/jacuzzi area. It was decent. We did not use it but we perused it. There were some outdated elliptical machines mixed in with some up to date ones. They had some dumbells as well. As I said, it was decent.
We dined at the restaurant in the hotel. Nothing to write home about but at least we could stay in and not worry about traffic or waiting for a table somewhere.
Now the suite. I guess I have been spoiled staying at numerous H.I.E's ( Holiday Inn Express ) as this hotel is somewhat older BUT I must say the suite was quite spacious and above all, QUIET. We heard hardly a door slam or anything.
The TV's in the suite need to be upgraded. ( I overheard a conversation the bartenders were having that this was upcoming ). The furniture was quite old but in great condition. Outlets were at a premium.
There was a refrigerator but no microwave. There also was a coffee maker.
All in all I would stay at this C.P. again. Hopefully the upgrades are forthcoming as this has the potential to be a better than "Very good" hotel.
Kudos to the staff as they made us feel comfortable. Thanks.
