I stayed on Sat. Oct 6, 2012. Check-in was made easy by a courteous and VERY helpful desk clerk who even telephoned my airline to find out if my missing bag had been located. Room was clean and quiet, even though it was only one floor above the outdoor patio. Love that the floor is engineered hardwood rather than carpet, which always seems so dirty. A bit disconcerting to have the shower right in the room, but it wasn't a problem. The main floor restaurant was noisy, but the food was great, and offered a number of vegetarian choices. A number of people have complained about the airport shuttle, but I had no trouble finding the shuttle location at the airport, and once at the shuttle "terminal" there was a big sign for the hotel. The shuttle was on-time, as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
