This hotel was very nice, very clean and in a great location. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The van driver, CJ, was entertaining as he took us to area attractions. My only recommendation is that if you like a pillow that has some support, bring your own. Their pillows are so soft, they are virtually non-existent. We asked for firmer pillows twice, but each time they brought the same flimsy soft ones we had to start out with. They were foam, but just as flimsy as the down versions. The hotel would merit a five-star rating with that one change.
On the brighter side, their location is great- lots of restaurants nearby, right on the bus line and they will drive you anywhere within a couple of miles.
If you take a cab here from the airport, be forewarned that cab drivers confuse this with the Wyndham, so make sure you have the address and are sure of where you are before the cabbie leaves.
