We stayed at this Category 4 hotel using one of our free night stay certificates (category 1-4) from the spring promotion.  The hotel is actually in the middle of the airport. We had a great stay.  When we checked in, I asked for the best possible airport view.  If you viewed my post, Ask and You Shall Receive, you will view the picture taken from our room.  I could almost wave at the passengers.  My husband rearranged the furniture so that I could just sit at the window.  The planes were not taking off on that side of the airport, so we went upstairs to the revolving restaurant in the other tower and watched the planes taking off. The next morning, the planes were taking off on our side of the airport.

 

The Concierge Lounge was very busy during the afternoon. Some guests were unable to find places to sit. The food offerings included grilled vegetables and pork satay in addition to the cheese, crackers, chips, etc.  The attendant did a good job refilling the containers. It was not quite as busy when we went back for dessert.  Brownies and some fancy little desserts were available to the guests.  We had breakfast later than usual so we could avoid the crowd that had to go to work and that worked perfectly.  The attendant did a good job keeping the containers full.  The fruit was wonderful.  We were told the lounge is due to be renovated soon.

 

Parking is complimentary for guests staying overnight.  It is easy to get to your plane from the hotel  When we checked out, I asked if platinum members received free breakfast on the weekends when the lounge was closed and was told yes! 

 

I have wanted to stay at this hotel for a long time and I'm glad we finally had the chance to.  I highly recommend it.
