DONT book the BUSINESS ROOM
By the time I got on to book my room they had 2 rooms left. One with 2 queen beds and another they call a "business" room with a king bed. I choose the king bed. This room was $10.00 more than a normal room.
I got there and asked, "What is a business room?" ... "It is usually larger than a normal room." was the response. Humm ok. "Is it a quiet room? not next to anything right?" "yep it should be quiet." I was instructed to drive completely around the building and park about 1/2 way down the length & park near the door in the middle.
OK off I go. Drive around, park.. done.. go in the middle door that has no lock... up the stairs... find our room.. with the door open.. no towels.. none. The room was ok, nothing fancy. It did have a fridge & a flat screen cheap tv. Called for towels, they came right away.
OK.. now why you don't want the business room... This room 204 is directly above the lobby. We got to hear all the conversations and noises associated with guest arrivals and departures. The laughing, the hellos, the goodbyes, the car doors and of course the trunks. The conversations were pretty clear. NO our window was not open.
Not enough yet? We got to hear the last plane take off at night. The room is close enough to hear the jets ramp the engine up right before take off. Oh and of course I can tell you they start at 5:50 am. and every 10-15 mind after that. On an off thought it crossed my mind it might make it warmer.
Why would I think that? Because the hotel uses those huge noisy electric heaters just below the windows. Too noisy to leave on if you want to sleep. I did try the auto, it just never shut off. ;-( Just kept running.
Good news.. I pulled back the sheets to check the mattress. No bed bugs, the mattress looked new. Bad news.. No mattress pad at all. Just a sheet. The mattress might have been near new, but it was hard.. no pillow top here.
Yep ladies and gentlemen.. I paid $10.00 more for that lovely experience.
All in all .. don't choose a business room.. high numbers are father from the airport.
