Staff really great . Ordered room service and waited almost 2 and a bit hours for food to arrive. Had to call after 1.5 hour to hear why I hadn’t got it yet. Was told I wouldn’t have to pay for it , but still got billed $38. Won’t be doing that again!

Liked everything - nice & quiet even though busy, comfortable beds, friendly staff. Couldn’t get into restaurant for dinner as they were full. Maybe the restaurant is not big enough for the size of the hotel.

Loved the shuttle service from and to the airport. Free service and the staff were amazing. We landed after midnight and they were there quickly. The room was quiet which considering how close it was to the airport, this was very good. The restaurant onsite had amazing food and great service. The room we had was a little dated but overall was clean and tidy. Would definitely stay here again.
