I was not sure what to expect here because I had this hotel booked for me, and I almost exclusively stay at a Marriott property when traveling. Having said that, I was REALLY surprised with what I walked into here when I opened the door to my room.
HUGE...that is the best way to describe it. Very much like what you would expect at a Homewood Suites (Hilton). The furnishings were very warm and welcoming (not like the military-issue stuff that you get at Residence Inn, and the kitchen looked more like a small apartment kitchen than a hotel kitchen.
The bed...OMG...the BED! I_DO_NOT normally sleep well in hotels. This one...best sleep ever, without question. I really can't say that enough. In fact, let me say it again...BEST_SLEEP_EVER in a hotel.
As far as the surrounding area, make darn sure you have a car. There really isn't any place close to get the things you might want without a car (unless you don't mind playing "Frogger" while crossing the highway.) The "BridgeMart" is lacking in some things I might want to have on hand, but all in all, it isn't bad.
Breakfast...not fancy by any stretch of the imagination, but it is food, and the staff is very helpful and friendly.
If you need a place to stay near the airport, I would highly recommend this property to you.
