My expectations for airport hotels are pretty low because you usually stay in them because of convenience - not by choice.
My stay was like that, and, not surprisingly, this hotel failed to live up to even Hampton Inn standards.
The first room I was assigned had a strong undertone of cigarette smoke - the second was a bit better, but this hotel smells like all they did was take down the "smoking ok" signs and slap on some new wallpaper.
Room is boring - a weird mix of modern bed headboard, 70s era chairs and mirrored table, pottery barn style tv cabinet, and a poor attempt at the hampton curved shower rod.
Attention to detail is poor - the clips holding on the shower curtain are open and whoever put it on missed three or four gromets.
HVAC is as noisy as a window unit and the TV selection is the worst I've encountered this year.
The internet, however, is speedy, which, I guess, is the pleasant surprise since the tv has about 20 channels, excluding the hotel's channel and the airline flights. You will be watching movies on your laptops.
Price was about the same as an Hilton Garden Inn - and I would suggest going the Hilton route frankly. The one in El Segundo is a good example of that chain, with much better TV and starbucks walking distance for dinner.
