Stayed for a week for a conference. Staff was wonderful from the moment we pulled up. All were very friendly and helpful. Had one minor issue with the shower in our room but the front desk staff were very quick to get maintenance to attempt a repair and when that didn't work they

Closest airport shuttle drop off point to your hotel.
Hi Gregg, We recommend using Allied airport shuttle. They have a downtown shuttle that will drop you off right outside the front doors of the hotel. The cost is $15 from the airport to the hotel and $10 from the hotel to the airport.

I will be arriving prior to the regular check in time. Is there secure storage for my luggage while I go site seeing? Is it complementary?
I checked out of my room in the morning and the hotel were more than happy to store my luggage until I left for the airport at 6pm whilst I went sightseeing. My luggage was securely stored in a locked room and I was given a receipt for each item. Staff were friendly and helpful.
