For what you pay a night for the 'Park and Fly' special, you really should get a lot more. There's a lot of hotels in the area that provide the same service and are a much better value.
Firstly, while the rooms have technically been renovated recently and are nice on the inside, it's pretty clear they spent all of their renovation funds on the interior and didn't bother to update their windows. I didn't sleep at all the night we stayed as I could hear every car that passed, every conversation out on the hallway and every guest that showed up in the night. It might as well have been made out of tissue paper.
The biggest sell on this deal was the 'Park and Fly'. Leave your car there and they'll get you to the airport. That's the bait. The switch is that there's not a 'shuttle', you get a 'voucher' for a local cab company to take you to the airport and a second voucher for the way home. This worked fine getting TO the airport, but on the way home no cabbies would take this voucher. My wife, infant son and I stood outside the airport at the taxi stand for an hour while we tried to find a cabbie to take us to the hotel. It was to the point that the guy working the cab stand was about to take us home himself. The hotel had no suggestions on how to fix it - just were 'upset' that the cabbies weren't taking the voucher.
I was scheduled for two nights, one night on either side of our trip. My experience was so bad that I cancelled the second night and we drove home through the night. Add to that the cluster with the cab, and it makes it an experience I wouldn't want to repeat.
Until they fix their sound issues, and have their own shuttle you'll get a better value staying somewhere else.
