Ten minutes from airport, but not noisy. Handy for West Shore Mall, just over the busy Kennedy Boulevard. (Same as all the other malls in the USA). Comfortable room with high quality bed. Flatscreen TV, which is nice to see. Three of us there on business found the air-conditioning to be "freeze or off" or somewhat stuffy.
Friendly staff at open plan bar, but no draft beer. Shame. 'Shula's' restaurant doesn't disappoint with good steaks. Buffet breakfast had an impressive array of fruit but the 'hot' choice was limited - no beans, beef hash, mushrooms, tomatoes. But a good supply of smoked salmon with garnishes.
When trying to sleep, maid ignored "Do Not Disturb" sign on bedroom door. Suggested the sign be printed in Spanish!
Small outdoor pool on 9th floor proves popular with staying air crew.
