In anticipation of the I-Drive Live project, this well-located all-apartment hotel, near plenty of places to eat and arranged around a courtyard pool, was just lavished with a gut renovation, so there are fewer moderate properties that are as current. All units will have new kitchens with new appliances, just-installed furniture, fresh carpeting, and bedding, a booth for family meals, and lots of added electrical outlets for recharging. Suddenly a dowdy ‘80s holdover has become a barely slept-in mid-priced darling. The staff is unusually dedicated, and some have been running this property for years.
