“Bring Your Earplugs”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Let's face it folks, these hotels are usually placed very near a freeway so one side or the
other (or both) are going to have rooms that are noisy. The time of year you are staying there
also makes a big difference. When it's cold outside you will probably have the windows closed
and the heater on, thus less outside noise. During the warmer months or if you like to sleep with
a window cracked open the outside noise can be considerable. We were there in November and
both sides of this hotel were very noisy. The freeway on one side and Buck Owens Blvd. on
the other. When we checked in the man at the front desk admitted that there really was no
"Quiet side."

When you first enter this hotel the double staircase rising to the second floor is very impressive.
It looked like something from the movie Gone With The Wind.

The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom had a gimmick shower that made me laugh when
I first saw it. I'll attach a picture. My wife and I thought the breakfast was very good.
Our room was clean and a very nice large suite.

Thanks for your time. Hope this helps.

I was expecting a typical sterile chain hotel especially right off the freeway in not the best area but was VERY surprised with what I found. The entry way is beautiful with two sweeping staircases, the grounds and interior were spotless, the room we had was huge and beautifully decorated (30' X 12' at least) and the ENTIRE staff went above any expectations you would have of a chain hotel. It almost felt as a quaint bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. Each staff member greeted you with a smile and was there to assist you in anyway you needed. As wonderful as the hotel was, the staff made it even better !!!

Speaking of breakfast, it really was a hot meal and not just stale rolls, cold cereal with coffee !!! Cheese omelettes, bisquits and gravy, scrambled eggs and delicious sausage.

Again, not in the best area BUT very convenient to all parts of the city.

Room Tip: We had a corner king room on the 4th floor and it had microwave, couch, flat screen, frig., unique s...

Attentive service and great rooms. Breakfast served at 5 am, early enough for business travelers to get something to eat before leaving for the day.

Easy access to the freeway. Manager's happy hour can't be beat! Just keep your colleagues away from the nearby strip club if you want to keep them employed -- if you want to get rid of them, then by all means, send them there!

Room Tip: A room on the front side of the hotel are quieter.
