This hotel is located off of I-240, and it's not far from downtown (20 minutes). We were very quite pleased with hotel. It's location is somewhat obscure, that brandname hotels in the area are moving out does not inspire confidence. There are supposed to be shuttles to the airport, but I imagine that a rental car is quite necessary otherwise.
The lobby was large, spacious, and welcoming. The rooms were very nice too, and the "official" pictures posted here represent the rooms fairly. The TV provided is an old CRT, while the toiletries provided seemed of good quality. Outside the room, the corridors were a little warm, and the ice and vending machines were very noisy. We had the opportunity to enjoy both swimming pools and the hot tub; no complaints there.
The one blemish on our visit was the complimentary breakfast (provided for all guests). The food is good, but it starts to run out before 9 am (it is supposed to stay open to 9.30 am). Disposable tableware is used, where chinaware and real glasses would be more appropriate for this class of hotel.
