Better than some reviews described!!!

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from on February 22, 2008

I had read some reviews and was a little worried yet prepared. The hotel has very nice scenery if you are in the "Premium" rooms (they have just been renovated). Unlike other reviews it was not noisy. There was a smell in the rooms we could not put our finger on it, we just had the fan on all the time. I had checked out but misses my flight, had to come back and got a "standard" room. DO NOT STAY IN THOSE. They are the original rooms with very bad views and hard beds. The staff is wonderful and eager to help. There is a Denny's on the property, security is everywhere you turned but they were dressed in suits, which made it feel more upscale. Happy hour - yes its free yet a little disappointing. They have a shuttle that does rounds at the airport. I was told I had to call, and be careful there will be people outside the airport that will try and persuade you not to wait and to take a taxi which is expensive. One person told me they slow and I would sit there for another half hour - the shuttle pulled up within 5 mins. I am sure he was just trying to be helpful. But I am definately planning to stay here again...cannot wait!
