This was a very exceptional hotel stay with only a couple of important problems.

The rooms are large and appropriately appointed for 2 1/2*. They include a refrigerater that is larger than dorm sized, a microwave and coffee maker, dishes for 4 and extra cupboard space. The rooms are mostly clean but when you move things around (like the coffee maker) it is not necessarily spotless underneath. The staff is pleasant, prompt and helpful. They were able to carry over my group rate reservation into my priceline one without a room change. Despite the desd clerk's assurance, however, we did nee to change room keys. We were part of a youth sporting group that virtually took over this hotel. The first morning they were ill-prepared for young athlete's appetites at the normally abundant breakfast, but by the second (of 4) morning they had adjusted nicely. Otherwise they didn't seem overwhelmed by a full house. The sound proofing is so effective, that even with a room full of (well bahaved) kids, it was always quiet in rooms with doors closed. The pool is outdoors and open from April through October. It was above average sized for a hotel with plenty of seating and towels. Parking was never a problem.

This hotel is located almost directly across from the end of the Wanamaker road exit off I-70. It is a simple right and immediate left at the end of the ramp. For all your shopping and dinning needs, simply make a right exit from the hotel onto Wanamaker for all the standard FF and casual dining, a shopping mall, Wal-mart, etc.

The only real problem is that the bathrooms are very small and the door opens in. This means you must shuffle carefully in order to safely open the door.

The hotel was great. Separate living, sleeping w/ bar sink and fridge plus 42" flat screen. Great continental breakfast w/ the option of "pay per item" omelets etc.
The sad part was that when I got home, there was a message waiting from Visa fraud alert. The hotel had majorly overcharged for incidentals and it raised a red flag with my credit card company. All was straightened out but Visa had to cancel my card and reissue a new one, so I was w/o my card for a week.

Addendum to Hyatt review. After contacting the hotel directly, they offered to call Visa and explain the accounting error.
After contacting Hyatt corporate, they offered 5000 points which is equivalent to one nights stay at a Hyatt Place location.
