I stayed in this hotel for 3 months when I moved to Topeka four year ago. Service was great and the staff really cared about customers' experience. Request a room on the side away from the highway. The Brick Oven is another very good restaurant in the area (2 mile south on Wanamaker Rd. just past SW 29th). Prices are moderate, but the food and atmosphere are worth it. The filet mignon is better than any I have had in Topeka or Lawrence.
