Positive Reviews

Short walk from airport terminal

According to reviews, this hotel’s convenient location is one of the main reasons guests who are on a layover choose to stay at this property. Guests don’t need to leave the airport building and waste money on an airport transfer service, as this hotel is just a short walk through the parking garage from the terminal building.

Lovely staff

The staff’s welcoming presence makes guests feel comfortable and at home during their stay at this hotel. Guests are pleased with how efficient the staff are when needing help, and find this type of service memorable.

Delicious breakfast each morning

Reviews point out that the breakfast served every morning offers plenty of variety. Guests are also impressed with the quality of the freshly prepared food. This, as well as the breakfast’s reasonable price, is why guests choose to dine on site every morning.

Negative Reviews

Check-in can be slow

During certain times of the day, guests experience a slow check-in. This can be especially frustrating for guests who have just been on a lengthy flight. The last thing any guest wants to do is stand in a long check-in queue. Guests feel as though more staff members need to be at the front desk during these times.
