Choose a second floor room if you like to sleep in
Posted Aug 4, 2016
Overall, very satisfied with our queen mini-suite. The hotel was very clean, both in rooms and common areas. Checkin/out was fast. Breakfast buffet had a nice selection even though I showed up 20 minutes before the end of it. The pool was on the small side but average for this type of hotel. It was heavily chlorinated--made my eyes burn without going underwater--but given the hoards of kids using it, that's probably for the best. Exercise room had nice treadmills with TVs (though they face an unmirrored wall, so your back/butt is to the glass door, which made me a little uncomfortable), weights, elliptical machines, yoga matts, mirror, water cooler & towels. It's open 24 hrs. There's a little market that sells snacks, including ice cream. There's a free shuttle to the airport and zoo. My only complaint is that if you want to sleep in, you definitely should pick a second floor room. We picked a ground floor and asked the desk if there was any reason I might be neglecting that the 2nd floor would be better, and she said it's a matter of preference. But there is a REALLY good reason to pick the 2nd floor if you want to sleep in--the noise from the floor above is pretty profound. Either there ware tons of guests jumping up and down, throwing suitcases across rooms, and slamming every possible door, or the building transmits 2nd floor noise very effectively (or both). Either way, good luck sleeping in on the ground floor (this also goes for going to be early--same issue at night).
