I spent 1 week at this hotel for business meetings, and really enjoyed my stay.
The room was clean and quiet, apart from the sounds of airplanes taking off/landing. My only complaint about the room is that the surface of the desk is glass -- trying to use a laser computer mouse on a glass top simply doesn't work. For a business hotel, that seemed a little odd to me.
The meeting facilities were great, and I never had trouble with the WiFi throughout the entire building. The on-site restaurant, Mojitos, was also pretty good.
Apart from a mall, there is not much within walking distance. The shuttle bus will take you within 3 miles of the hotel though, and that is very helpful. The driver (can't remember his name!) was excellent and very friendly. The staff, as a whole, was excellent.
Great hotel if you have a car and don't mind being a little far away from things.
