Every hotel employee I encountered during my stay was extremely helpful and genuinely nice. When my flight home was canceled I was assisted by the front desk and concierge. The hotel was nice, with a coffee shop in the lobby and a nice lobby bar as well as Shula's steakhouse. My room was clean and comfortable. There is a complimentary...

This is one of the few city hotels where I didn't have to pay for the parking garage, which was a pleasant surprise. Check in was no hassle, except the computer system was down, but the front desk was very nice while they did paperwork manually. I was told as an IHG member, wifi was our bonus, which these days...

Nice hotel that is very close to the airport. Staff was very nice and there are several restaurants a block away. My only complaint is that they attempt to charge $13.95 per day for wifi. If mom and pop restaurants have figured out how to provide free wifi for customers, certain an upscale hotel should be able to get it...
