I checked in on Wednesday, May 24, 2012 for one night. The older lady at the front desk was luke warm, during the check in process. I was assigned room 202 right off the atrium near the elevator; which on any other night would have probably been just fine, but can you believe there was a wedding reception in the atrium on a Wednesday night? So, needless to say it is very difficult to sleep with the very loud music and people in the hallway, looking down at the wedding party. It seems to me that the guest of the wedding would be put in a room this close to the action and other guests a little further away. It also seems that the party should have been booked in ballroom to contain the music and the guest on a week night; most people are probably here on business, like me. It would be a bit more understandable to have a function in the atrium on the weekend, but I guess it's all about the money and not the guest.
The room is large with a pretty comfy and clean bed, and a sofa bed. The carpet has a few stains and bath tub did not appear to be clean, I went to Wal-Mart and bought shower shoes. The complimentary shuttle to airport was very convenient, and the drivers were friendly.
I hope I get a few hours of sleep tonight; I have an early flight in the morning. Because my company insists we stay here, I hope there is no party next time. They are playing the stupid Chicken song now, maybe the reception will be over soon.
