This hotel is not near sights, but within walking distance to the North Star Mall. Chose this hotel for proximity to business dealings, otherwise would stay somewhere closer to more action.
Rooms are standard, but the one I received had a musty smell, as if the carpet had been wet and not dried out thoroughly. Requested a change, but was told the hotel was booked. Not sure if that was the case or not, since it didn't seem busy, but not a big deal. Staff was pleasant during all encounters.
Shuttle service is hit or miss. Called for a pickup as I disembarked the plane, hoping I would only have to wait 5 minutes or so. Ended up waiting about 15 minutes in the scorching heat. Driver was very friendly, and I got the feeling that he and any other driver are very overworked, in that he also shuttles people to the mall and other locations within a 2 mile distance. Waited about 20 minutes longer than the mall shuttle stated it was scheduled to depart, and another group waited even longer to get to where they were going. In my opinion, they'd be better served with another van and driver.
TGIFriday's is literally across the street, not much else within walking distance, other than the mall. Overall a fine choice for the area.
