I had read good reviews about this hotel on Trip Advisor, but actually very bad reviews on SPG.com. I'm not sure what the problem with the people on SPG is, though, since we had a very good experience at the hotel.
We booked through Orbitz and got two double rooms. They were modern, clean, well-lit, etc. We liked the style, but mainly we were there for the sleep, since we had an 11 hour layover. The bed was also very nice, and we slept great. The staff was nice, although they got hit with a large group arriving late in the evening, at the same time we did.
The only thing we had a bit of problem with was the shuttle. I had seen that it was outside of door #5 every 45 minutes. We went out the door and waited about 10 minutes, but had no idea when or where the shuttle would come. Plus, the honking and all the other people offering rides wouldn't shut up, so it was a bit annoying. I finally decided to ask the girl with the Sheraton sign if she could help us, since both hotels are part of SPG. Luckily, she was able to, and she called the driver. He was actually upstairs at the departure area, so we headed up there and got to the hotel fine after that. The shuttle to the airport is painless and has a clearly-posted schedule, so it would help a ton if they did the same for the shuttle from the airport.
If you do have to take a taxi, though, it's quite close and probably wouldn't cost too much. But if you're wanting to avoid getting local currency in cash, that would maybe be an issue... especially since the shuttle is a free part of the hotel anyhow.
So, rambling over. Nice hotel, just take note about the transportation to/from there.
