We booked last minute on Priceline. The price was good.
The hotel has both good and not so good qualities. But, overall the experience was good.
The hotel had new carpeting.
The check in was helpful and fast.
The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.
The hotel is very close to the airport, so you would expect to hear airplanes but we did not hear them, just watched them land.
The pool was big and the hot tub was nice.
Good full size towels in the pool area.
Nice work out room.
It was convenient to the Light Rail.
Nice TV in the room.
Not so good:
The parking situation was strange. You definitely want to unload your stuff at the check in lobby because it is difficult to get to your car based on how the hotel is designed.
The hotel does not look nice from the outside-absolutely no curb appeal.
Room smelled of old smoke.
Our room had a terrifically noisy air conditioner and a noisy, broken toilet.
The pool area was not clean and the pool water was cold.
No free breakfast even though the internet booking said that parking and breakfast was included.
