I stayed one night on business. The hotel service was acceptable at all levels. There is nothing fancy about the hotel, but was relatively clean, but not new. In the US, this hotel would be under renovation; in Africa, it was average. The food was good at the restaurant.
Prices at the restaurant and stores in the hotel were high (lunch was $32 US; shirts were $220 US - my bags failed to arrive with me).
US currency is accepted in the country, but must be in perfect condition - no tears, etc.
There is no shuttle. Taxi from the airport worked but appears less than reliable. I used the blue and white cabs and avoided the drivers touting for business. It was $50 US - but bargaining was difficult because I speak no French.
