We only stayed one night before boarding a cruise and needed a hotel easily accessible for someone without a vehicle. This was perfect. We arrived on a rainy evening and the reception staff very kindly lent us an umbrella. We were able to walk to carabbas a short distance

We needed a reliable, clean place to stay the night before a cruise. Price was reasonable, hotel was newer & clean, had a free airport shuttle, right across from a shopping area (if you forgot something?), plenty of places to eat within walking distance, decent breakfast

Stayed overnight before leaving on a cruise. This hotel is near both. They have a free shuttle to and from the airport. Once you collect your luggage you call the desk and let them know you’ve arrived. The shuttle was waiting by the time we rolled our suitcases to the pick up

$580 to see 4 inches of 17th Street! Yes, that little crack is what you will see of the street. The large white-ish area is the wall of the building next door. If the window could open you could probably reach out and touch it.
Note the lovely half-paint job on the building next door.

We got to airport early. Make sure to call, there's a phone inside airport to call hotel for shuttle. They can hold on to your luggage at hotel as well. We asked if we could have an earlier check in and they were able to accomodate us since there was a room available. They will definitely try to get you in. Amazing staff

When you leave the hotel parking lot turn left cross the road and a short distance you will see some stores being advertised along with the laundromat. It is not far, but we have not used it so not sure how good or the cost.

We were just there in Dec and they should be ready now. There is no problem with rooms and no noise or mess. They will be redoing the old section updating etc but nothing to worry about. We will be back in February and look forward to the new rooms and pool and a new breakfast area

"I any room will be a good choice."
"Nothing bad to report here a safe spot to chose"
