I got this hotel on Priceline for $50 so I am happy with the price. We had an early morning flight from Philadelphia so we decided to stay at the airport. We arrived about 8:00 pm and as other reviewers stated, there was loud hiphop music inside the "lobby" (really just an open space with a round kiosk to check-in), the elevators and the immediate outside, which made it impossible to have a normal conversation. Several other guests (who were younger than we were) made the same comments about the music when we were in the elevator so it wasn't just us. However, once you were on your floor it was quiet, What wasn't quiet were the screaming children running up and down our hallway until almost midnight. I tried to call the front desk to ask them to do something but they never answered the phone. When we went down to the lobby after we checked in, I advised the lady who was manning the check-in kiosk that we were without packets of coffee in our room for the little coffeemaker--she said she would have someone bring them right up but no one ever did. The rooms themselves are very functional with good use of space. The bed was very comfortable and there is a large screen TV. However, it is very bare and utilitarian--grey walls in the hallways and the rooms. Some colorful pictures on the wall would have added some color and warmth to the rooms. There is no bathtub, only a walk-in shower, which was fine with us. And yes, the parking is $6.00 per night. The next morning we awoke to no hot water. Called the front desk and they said the entire hotel was without hot water and they had called maintenance. Since we had an early flight, we took a quick, very cold shower and headed to the airport.
This is a Starwood property and I was really surprised at the lack of service and amenities. If we had not gotten the $50 rate on Priceline I would have been very unhappy. The next time, I think I'll go with a more traditional hotel like the Sheraton or Hilton, which were just across the way.
