Stayed one night in a superior room. The room was spotless with a huge bathroom and oversized bath tub which was very welcoming. The rooms are soundproof, so you get a great view of the airport runway but with none of the noise you might expect. As we were travelling as part of a large group, we had reserved the sectioned off dining area in the main restaurant for breakfast. When we arrived at breakfast this had been forgotten, but it was quickly rectified and places were laid up. The cooked breakfast was very good, and there seemed to be a variety of other options too.
Theresa on reservations was excellent, and dealt with our bookings efficiently. My only real gripe is that other members of our party had trouble booking as part of our block booking when they spoke to other members of the reservations team - and that making phone bookings are a bit of a pain as they can only be made during office hours Mon-Fri, which I thought was a bit odd for such a big chain hotel.
Nevertheless, if I had need to stay in the area again I would definitely return to this hotel.
