Avianca airlines had put us up in this hotel, it's about 45 mins away from the airport. Check in took a long time since there were a lot of people, but the lobby staff took a long time to check in everyone. Evening buffet was just fine, but deserts and the next morning breakfast was great. We didn't have any...

Staff is super well trained - you can tell they take customer experience very seriously. Upon entering, you will get a nice bottle of water - unexpected but nice. Rooms are spacious and beds are extremely comfortable. AC works perfectly. Fitness center is pretty good - pleasantly surprised. The food and drinks at the restaurant are too expensive! Frustrating!

When I tried to check in, the front desk person insisted me to upgrade to premium facility so that I could use their premium launch. Due to the high pressure, I accepted it. But the breakfast in the premium launch (10th floor) is really Pathetic. Snacks / drinks are also not worth. Don't upgrade to Premium benefits. That's not worth.
