    Property condition


    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Amenities

    Did not have free WiFi. Only decaf coffee in rooms. Breakfast was way overpriced. Staff was good. Bar area was nice. Rooms were comfortable. Hot water in shower was hit and miss.

    Stayed 4 nights in Nov. 2019


    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    The lobby is beautiful. This is the second time I have stayed here. Both times I had to ask for the room to be made up as it hadn’t been done by mid to late afternoon. In room amenities are fine but nothing special. Only one robe is provided for two guests. The hot water is very temperamental. Still, clean and comfortable.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I had a Queen room on 6th floor and it was HUGE! I enjoyed all the amenities, especially the shower and bedding. The hotel and toiletries smell amazing.

    i wish there was free breakfast. Other than that, the staff & hotel is amazing! I believe housekeeping comes around 2x, the hotel is very well kept & beautiful. The staff had no issue getting me checked in late at night with a warm & energetic vibes. Stayed here for my first time to Ohio & my first Lost Lands music festival. Loved it!

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Beautiful lobby and friendly staff. However, my room was a bit smaller than expected. My biggest complaints are regarding parking and noise. The l self-park parking lot is extremely cramped. Short on space! I parked around 5 and came back later that evening to find that someone parked extremely close to me. I had to crawl through the passenger’s side. Bottom line—the cars are packed like sardines in the lot. Second, I had trouble falling asleep because of noise from the hallways. I think that has to do with the hotel layout/design. You can hear everything going on in the hallway from your room.
