This is the second time I have stayed at this property. Make sure you get a room with a runway view if you love to watch planes. Rooms have a balcony that makes you feel close enough to the planes to touch. Rooms are well insulated so noise from outside isn't bothersome (noise from inside is another issue - see below).
Bed is super comfortable, numerous pillows, great sheets. Towels were a bit cheap, no bathrobe. Bathroom needs updating and didn't feel as clean as the rest of the room. Water pressure and showerhead - disappointing. TV was LCD but not true HD. Wireless internet fast and reliable but, as so many have said, should not be $12.95 per day.
If you want minimal noise from inside the hotel, ask for a room on the east end of the hotel. This would be the check-in atrium versus the restaurant atrium. The Concorde Grill plays that awful elevator musak light jazz that echoes off every inch of the open atrium. Really tiresome when you have heard before. They should turn it down (or turn it off). It in no way adds to the experience or ambiance - it is in fact detrimental. I mean, who really likes that stuff anyway?
Speaking of the Grill - good food, generous portions, non intrusive service, and reasonable (for an airport hotel) prices. Seemed to be understaffed and kitchen time was too long at lunch and dinner. Much better in the morning.
Front Desk efficient. Free airport shuttle every 20 minutes. Drivers (as with most hotel shuttle drivers) don't seem to have a clue what it feels like to ride in the back seat. Bounced completely off the seat a couple of times. One good thing - it was fast. Not even 10 minutes from hotel to check-in at the airport.
All and all, the price on most weekends is a bargain and the view of the runways is the main atrraction. With a few fixes and a redo of the bathrooms, it would be THE perfect plane spotters weekend.
