Been there a number of times and will return. Chose this resort on price many years ago, and we return for the quality.

My last post that documented the value of Google Places Click traffic stirred up a few questions from the automotive community. One question posted to me by…

Chevrolet Digital Advisor
Introduction
I graduated from Michigan State University and spent 7 years in network affiliate television, including 5 years at the NBC station in Flint where I produced a kids’ news show, “Young People’s Report.” Working with kids wasn’t new, as I spent 5 summers as a camp counselor in northeastern Pennsylvania and actually met my wife, a Saginaw native, at a charity event in upstate New York during one of those summers.

After 3 years at an ad agency which catered to car dealerships, I spent over a decade with the McDonald Auto Group as Marketing Manager and Mike Young Buick GMC as the Digital Marketing Manager, before accepting a position in 2012 as a GM Digital Advisor based out of Allentown, PA. 
 
When not working, I enjoy family time with my wife and two daughters, Caribbean vacations, and tennis. Friday evenings throughout the summer, I can be found relaxing on our back deck with family and friends.

State, regional and nationally recognized for video production, I'm now in the business of marketing car dealerships online.

This is like the Ritz Carlton of dry cleaners. It's great to walk in and be known. How does that line go... sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. Friendly, helpful, and even sewed a loose button back on my coat while I waited. We haven't needed any alterations done, but they do them and would be the first place I'd go.

It's so nice to speak to folks with a personality. Every time I call for a delivery, they are not only prompt , but also helpful. They leave the propane and a bill, and if we're home, they offer to relight the pilot. Each employee I've dealt with has been happy and that should be true of more companies. Whatever they've done to instill a customer service mindset in their employees is top-notch.

Impressive stay. More than covered the basics for me... Outlet by bed, functional desk chair, and shower head above eye level. Great view of the stadium, temperatures were right, television was well sized, and everything worked... which is not a given in many hotels. Checked in with their app which allowed me to bypass a long check-in line and use their electronic key. This was an incredible advantage, but the app can take some time to understand which item you're trying to unlock, which is frustrating when you need it to select your floor in the elevator. Self-parking was $30/day and was convenient.

It seems that people who write reviews here are either happy or mad. I was happy, and perhaps dinner is the right time to show up. Efficient, quality service from Monica and solid food quality. Can't think of anything that should have gone differently.

Ordered fried fare and it was good. Nothing exceptional, but fast and a nice experience. The "hot" wing sauce was ok and the wings crispy and properly cooked. The freezer to fryer french fries were a bit less than crisp, and the wings could have been more meaty. Next visit we'll try some items they actually make and see how that goes.

Great staff, great room, and nice location. Location was perfect for us, as we were in Times Square previously and wanted to better explore the financial district, World Trade, and relax. Beautiful sunset over the Hudson, take-out from Ho-Yip (a couple blocks east) and a day wandering downtown with friends. Worth repeating!

The building is somewhat rough looking, but the interior (and the food) are great. I would expect that first-time customers are harder to attract than repeat visitors. Great bar, great servers (in cheap t-shirts), and food worth every penny they charge. A VERY impressive local business worth trying if you seek quality Mexican dining in a casual, but refined, atmosphere.
