The hotel building is probably a bit old. It may take some time figuring out all the entrances and turns. However, it's clean and convenient.
The staff was very friendly and professional, especially the front desk.
The rooms are clean. You also get a refrigerator and a microwave. The only issue was TV: you can only watch it from the bed.
Internet is fast and reliable.
Very good sleep quality. The mattress was almost as good as I have at home, which happens very rarely. In addition, it's very quiet. Since I had a jet lag coming from the East Coast, I was able to go to sleep even at 9 p.m.
The gym is better than most hotels: in addition to the usual treadmills, there is a weight lifting machine. The only minor issue is you have to ask for the TV remote at the front desk and bring it back.
Full breakfast. However, the choices: it's pretty much the same omelets and pancakes every day. There were also a few days when they ran out of half of their juices.
Free parking. Can't say there was plenty of it, but I could always find a spot.
The hotel is very close to the airport. I can't say it's a bad neighborhood; it's a residential area with plenty hotels and restaurants around, as well as quick and easy access to highways 101 and 880. However, it definitely smelled like sewer outside, and that is probably the reason why I am not staying there again.
