For an airport hotel, it served its purpose of providing a safe place to sleep, but nothing too special about this hotel. The free airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes and driver was friendly and got the luggage cart at the hotel for us. The staff was friendly and accommodating at check-in. The room was clean and had 2 water bottles included. The bathroom was very small, so small in fact that you need to close the bathroom door in order to use the toilet. The shower had hot water and was fine. Bed was firm and came with 4 pillows. The room temperature was cold and even with increasing the thermostat, it remained at 70 degrees.
There was a loud train whistle about midnight and the airplanes overhead stopped about 1:00am. The hotel furnishes earplugs in the room, so clearly they know about the noise issues with their location. Even though our room was across from the elevator we never heard it all night long. The elevator is extremely small, barely fit the luggage cart inside, not really that important, but reflective of the overall feel of the place. Fridge and coffee maker in room is nice. The free breakfast had a larger than usual selection - compared to many other hotel chains that feature the free breakfast. They had 5 choices of breakfast meats, and three choices of eggs/egg substitutes. The airport shuttle was on time with another friendly driver back to the airport.
