Well to start out the review you may want to read my Jamaica review. But, we were flying home and our flight from Atlanta to Des Moines, Iowa was cancelled due to weather. The ticket desk at the airport suggested Country inn. After a quick Tripadvisor look on my blackberry, we decided no way!! Thanks Tripadvisor!!
We got to the main concourse and were looking at the wall o' hotels. And I noticed a new comfort suites with a top floor bar and restaurant. Keep in mind we are coming home from a week of all inclusive pampering. I pick up the phone and diall 66. What I heard on the other end of the line put a smile on my face, which for the last 3 hours I didnt think that would have happened. She agreed to the room rate of 59 dollars. And was sending a shuttle to pick us up.
When you leave the airport the shuttles are like salesman. Its seriously annoying. But we kept our word and declined everyone until we seen the airport comfort suites bus. And the lady driving was very nice and welcoming. Am I believe what I am seeing? We were getting treated just as good in Atlanta as we were in Jamaica. We get to the hotel and check in, 2 rooms, no hassles and very friendly desk. I also have to mention how nice this place is. Our rooms were no kidding nicer than our 400 dollar a night resort that we just left from. The beds were very comfy and tall like ours at home. The rooms are all suites, I mean couch, fridge, microwave and best of all 32" lcd tv. It didnt matter we just wanted a nice place to sleep to get back home.
We were hungry so went upstairs to floor 5 which is an all glass restaurant. I cant remember the servers name, but she was awesome. She kept our drinks coming. We didnt want alcohol due to being sick of it for the last week. I ordered pizza and the women got steaks. The prices are excellent. 12 dollars for a ribeye and 10 dollars for a pizza the size of a semi tire. We also met Steve. We guessed Steve to be a truck driver that was drinking Crown Royal on the rocks. He was hammered drunk and was pretty much in love with my friends wife. But he was a nice guy, he just needed cut off. It was kinda hard to enjoy our well earned dinner when Steve was around. But there is one in every crowd. We finished eating and went back to the room, telling Steve good night.
I slept better than I have all week. The morning came fast and the granite walled hot shower was perfect. I went down to the computer in the lobby to check the flight. Its was on time. We ate the complementary breakfast downstairs. This isnt your normal donut and coffee breakfast. I mean eggs, sausage, bagels, juices, and most important two belgian waffle makers. I would have to say the breakfast was better than our resorts breakfast. Then here comes Steve, now sober, told us good morning and was off in his truck. We checked out and got another ride to the airport where we spent 12 hours until the 10pm flight home.
