"The biggest inconvenience I found was the VERY long walk from the registration desk to the elevators for access to the upper floors. When one is travelling with a lot of luggage as I was I was unhappy with the long walk dragging all my cases --it is the longest walk I have ever had to take in a big hotel."

"The good thing about this hotel was that the airport shuttle was free and there is a 24-hour restaurant available so you're assured of a hot meal at all times."

"I would love to stay there again and again I do a lot of road trips...The parking if you stayed there once do you have to pay again for each time you come. The service was great rally nice friendly staff at front desk. I would defenitely come again."
