"I would definitely stay again"

"Hotel is a perfect location to airport and did not require a taxi. Had business elsewhere after checking out and hotel held my baggage until I returned. This was extremely helpful as I had to take smaller planes to outlying areas and these planes would not of held my luggage."

8 out of 10 | Terry stayed February 26, 2010

"The staff were exceptional, the room, and hotel itself were clean and well looked after. I was expecting the room to a bit more "posh" for the price. Our only complaint was that it was a bit noisy with planes and people in the hallways arriving or departing. The location was very convient for our stop-over flight."

"This was the first of two stop-over stays. We were upgraded for this stay to quite a nice room, but we usually fly from Vancouver and stay at the Fairmont at the airport there. The Fairmont definitely rates higher with a comparison of rooms and noise levels for the price, however the Delta staff were very friendly, most accommodating and everything was clean and convenient."

"The hotel is within the airport complex, as such it is an ideal choice for meeting people coming off other flights or for having a pre-departure meeting. The restaurant, bar and room service are good overall. The rooms are small, well equipped and maintained. As a transit stop it is ideal as it is adjacent to the car rental agencies and airport shops."
