Our group booked the Hotel Preston because we were in town for a wedding and the location was ideal for our needs. The hotel is right across the street from the airport, but I was relieved that I didn't notice any noise from the planes.
We were greeted at 1:45 in the morning by a surly front desk staffer who was none too excited to be disturbed by the needs of guests wanting to check in. Unloading our belongings, we trekked through the lobby and took the elevator to our 9th floor suite. I didn't find the lobby to be this way, but the rest of the common areas, especially the hallways in this hotel, are extremely hot. Be prepared to sweat it out if you find yourself locked out of your room or stuck in an elevator.
I thought the decor was nice; there were a few details that I feel were overlooked - for example, the ceiling in the lobby was cracked and in need of paint. Our room was quite spacious and our bed was comfortable. I appreciated the white bed linens; somehow they put me at ease about their cleanliness. Our friends and their children went swimming in the pool and didn't have any complaints. The hotel uses Aveda products. The restaurant wasn't gourmet, but certainly more than adequate food with above average service. All the staff we encountered, minus the gentleman working the overnight at the front desk when we arrived, were more than helpful and pleasant.
We believe that we left three pair of shorts in the dresser and when we realized this nearly five days later we called the hotel. They claim they didn't have these items. I can't imagine that someone would want three pair of my husband's used khaki shorts, but honestly leaving them was my mistake.
Frankly, for $89/night I thought the place was decent. Will I be back, well I doubt that I would have a reason to be in the neighborhood again, but at the price and with the high level of cleanliness, I would probably book at the Hotel Preston again.
