The location is decent for access to downtown Desmo and the hotel has a fairly flexible local shuttle. The property is older and the rooms retain some out of fashion features, mirrored closet doors. Rooms are spacious clean and quiet. HVAC is louder but functional, some slow draining in the bathrooms. Parking can be a problem if there is a function going on, otherwise it is free. Restaurant and bar in the property is to be avoided, not necessarily bad but empty and sad. The exception to this is breakfast, the servers are older ladies that have been there seemingly forever. As an elite you are given a voucher for $3 off breakfast, everytime I have tired to use this it has turned into free breakfast. In addition to the breakfast voucher elites get a decent welcome bag with candies and bottled water. Local restaurant suggestions: Fong's Pizza for tasty NY style foldable varieties, Hessen Haus for wild game and German beers on draft.
