It's location adjacent to the airport makes it tempting for business travelers, but travelling families are the ones who would really thrive here. When we arrived (for business) the desk staff was friendly and helpful, our rooms were ready, and employees we saw around the hotel offered friendly greetings. The rooms are very respectable, mid-level, clean rooms, that come with a microwave and refrigerator, which would be good for parents with small children. On the other hand, there is also a safe, so maybe this is just a hotel with a lot to offer inside the rooms.There were not enough outlets available in the room, however, so I wound up sliding the bed away from the wall to plug my computer in. The bed itself was clean and comfortable.
The hotel offers free breakfast in the restaurant for guests, but don't get too exciting. It is the standard self-serve hot breakfast bar you see at many hotels, with the waffle machine, the toaster, the scrambled eggs and the coffee in the paper cups. It is a bonus, but not at the level of a free restaurant breakfast.
The pool area is a dream for kids. Indoor, big enough to play in, it cinludes a hot tub and a video game area. During our stay there were always a group of kids in the pool, and it was fun to watch them play and horse around.
The fitness room, on the other hand, was lame, consisting of the three standard cardio machines and a functional yet not versatile or comfortable universal weights station. This is such an important aspect of business travel that I am continually surprised to find inadequate exercise facilities at mid-level hotels.
The bar/restaurant was decent, and given the lack of good restaurants near the airport I would recommend eating in most of the time. Try the rueben.
Overall, this was a perfectly good place to stay, with clean rooms, friendly staff and solid amenities. I just wish I had brought my family.
