Clean room, great service and value for money. I will definitely stay here again. Be aware that it is a little tricky to find so give the airport shuttle or taxi driver the street address to punch into their navigator.

First off, I stay at a lot of IHG hotels around the world (I am Platinum Elite) and I am usually very satisfied with the value. This stay was less than stellar. First, when I booked there was no mention of the parking garage being under construction. The hotel has rented a parking lot "only 4 blocks away." Well, 4... More
