I guess I should have expected to not have much to do/walk to, staying at an airport hotel. Not even a gas station you can walk to to buy some pop and a snack. There is a small store in the lobby that has a good selection but very pricey ($5 for a Bud Light). The free coffee machines in the lobby were empty whenever I tried to get a cup. The one area eatery is the restaurant in the Hiltion across the street.
I was given a handicap accessible suite for some reason. It was HUGE. But the shower situation didn't seem doable for someone with a physical disability, unless they had a helper. The room was clean but a little threadbare-- dried stains on upholstery, etc.
Okay place to stay if you have a car or are only staying one night.
Front staff and shuttle drivers were very friendly. Note: The Shuttle is not labelled "Homewood Suites" so don't go looking for that when you arrive at the airport. Call the hotel for the name of the shuttle service they use.
