I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years. Never have really been a fan.
-Location. If you need an airport hotel, it can't be any closer. However, there is nothing (i.e. restaurants) walkable from the property.
-Building. It's a round hotel and also a former Air Force bunker (or something along those lines). So it kind of has a stuffy feel. Almost a bit creepy. The restaurant and bar are in the middle "atrium" area, however they are short on natural light.
-Rooms. Wierd almost "pie-shaped" rooms because of round hotel. Could be cool, but the design was way off. There is a lot of wasted space and dead space in the rooms. It just doesn't work. The decor isn't particulary fresh. It could use an updating. However, the bedding is very nice and the bathroom is generous in size.
-Staff. They are ok. Have encountered some indefferent employees.
You really have to expererience this hotel - it's hard to describe the odd feel the place gives off. Oh, and prepare to be nickel and dimed!
I would try other airport properties. If you do stay here, request a room with a window facing outside, not the atrium. Otherwise, there is very little natural light available.
