This hotel was a perfect choice for a number of reasons. 1) There is a free shuttle from the airport (call once landed) 2) There is plenty of shopping within walking distance to get last...

Stayed one night before cruise. Had a handicap accessible room although we didn't need it. Two doubles with bath. Hotel seems a little old but very clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast buffet typical for hotel chain. Area kept very clean. Fitness room extremely tiny if needed.

I write my reviews in categories, so skip to the part you care about most: Room: Clean, modern/recently updated, and a good size. Bed was comfortable. Hotel: The hotel in general is clean, but the one elevator that is dedicated to the entire building from guests to staff is very, very slow. Location: The PERFECT location if you're going on...
