Perhaps I have been harsh in my rating - the hotel was fine. Our room was a 'junior suite' - King bed with a separate sitting room, fridge, 2 TV's. It was as expected. There was the smell of glue, or paint in the room when we checked in - and a maintenance screwdriver left behind - not the best start, but the smell did eventually go away. Our room overlooked an airport parking lot - not pretty, but you are literally across the street from the airport - so not sure we should expect anything else.
I took the opportunity to have breakfast in the hotel in the morning (extra cost) and it was a bit of a tale of 2 experiences. On one hand it was great: the usual pastries, some fresh fruit, do it yourself homemade waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, etc. There was a chef on duty to make eggs to order - with more omelette ingredients than I have probably seen anywhere. Small things I suppose, but with such a good start, it's hard to understand orange juice from concentrate....Fresh squeezed would be awesome of course, but expensive - so even some fresh from a carton would have been a huge step up. The other head scratcher for me was the milk - only whole milk was available. Who even drinks this stuff anymore? Again - small issues to be sure, but given the details and experience with the rest of the buffet, it just seemed odd.
So all to say, for $200 a night+, my expectations run very high - and they were only marginally met. Nothing terrible, but probably cheaper alternatives available that return greater value - look around.
