I did enjoy my stay. This is a very unique hotel. There are two huge courtyards in the middle. The decor is very different too. The wallpaper seemed like something my Grandma would have chosen. But, I liked it! The bed was comfortable, and I slept well. There were a few "negatives". The pillows were not very good (I put two of them together and slept fine). I did hear a few planes take off (no big deal). The thing I liked the least was that I got turned around inside at least four times and had trouble finding my room. I recommend looking over the hotel map they provide. The staff was very helpful. Check-in and out was also a breeze. I don't recommend staying on the 4th floor. The hallways were very stuffy (warm), and I stayed in May, when it wasn't even that hot outside. Overall, this is a nice hotel. It is right off the expressway, and I parked close to my room. I'm sure I'll be back.
