I arrived at the airport and called for the shuttle. I was told it came every half hour and would be there in 15 minutes. 35 minutes later it arrived. When I checked in there was a very untrained young girl (worked on March 10 around 1:30pm) I asked if there were a shopping center in the area. She advised me that there was but no shuttle service to it. I asked if there were a walking distance restaurant and she advised me that Ruby Tuesdays was 1/4 of a mile. Come to find out it behind the Hyatt Place - next door.
After I settled into my room which was clean, nothing over the top and at the time I felt there was a shift change, I called the front desk and asked the same question about shopping center. Yes, there is a shuttle and it leaves at 6pm. Myself and other guests waited and the driver arrived at 6:20 pm. We were informed that drop off and pick up was at Target. On the other side of the outside mall are the restaurants and it seems logical to drop off and pick up at two locations within the mall. One at Target and the other perhaps near the restaurants (since the driver has to go past to exit) . The driver informed us pick up was at 8:00pm. Myself and two other women were there at 8 as instructed. The shuttle arrived at 8:45!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After three calls to the hotel. Everyone was hungry and tired.
Once back at the hotel, I ordered room service. A hamburger that was a pre-patty frozen burger. Simple horrible. Onion rings horrible. Also watch for the $2.00 delivery fee (this isn't a resort) and although your bill has a "tip" area, 18% is ADDED to the bill, so don't tip twice as the person delivering will not mention this to you.
I ended my stay with a sour sweet tea! Of course, what else did I expect and yes, tea sours!
