Why does any traveller book a room at an airport hotel? Our only reason to consider it was to start a fourteen-hour day less fatigued and more rested. That did not happen. This was one of the noisiest and least comfortable places I have stayed at in years, not at all in keeping with what we've become accustomed to at Hilton-chain hotels. The staff seemed too few and overtaxed for a place this size, though most struck us as polite and professional. A light-bulb was missing; two other lamps bulbs had poorly working switches. The carpet in our room smelled bad. The tub showed signs of poor workmanship and chipping, possibly from attempts to make it drain less sluggishly. The faucet over the bar sink wobbled from loose plumbing. The terraces and walkways all have a scuffed, worn-down look and they shook the room when people came walking along outside our door. There was no bellman to move our luggage up to our room when we arrived. Most important of all, it was nearly impossible to get any sleep with the noise. The building apparently comes with very poor sound-proofing, inside and out. Every half-minute until late at night the windows and walls shook with the sound of landing and departing jets. All the rooms are arranged around a large hollow space that echoes with the sounds of the bar band at night (past 3:00am on a Tuesday) and the shouts and clangs of breakfast staff in the morning. We could hear neighboring rooms' plumbing and television; I wonder how much worse it might have been had we not been on the top floor.
