I stayed here with my family for the Gem and Mineral Show. The hotel is huge, but there were hardly any guests for what should be a busy weekend. We kept taking laps around the hallways trying to figure out how many rooms were occupied, and we think it was probably less than 20. Normally in a large hotel you'll see people hanging out in the lobby, but it was empty.
But despite the eerie quiet, the rooms were nice and large. My parents were traveling with a ton of stuff and it all fit. The location is literally right down the street from the airport. In fact, I accidentally grabbed the wrong bag at the airport, realized it once I'd settled in at the hotel, and we were able to zoom right back and the owner of the bag hadn't even left baggage claim yet.
The one complaint I have is the continental breakfast. They ran out of something every morning. Once it was hot water, so no one could make oatmeal or tea. Then it was coffee. Then it was silverware. For having so few guests, you'd think they would be able to keep the dining room stocked.
Overall, a really nice hotel, good value, and if you're looking for peace and quiet, this is it.
