Clean rooms, comfortable beds, turn down service, in the heart of everything. All very nice. Complimentary coffee (am) and water with lemon/limes (pm) in lobby. Our room had bathrooms w/shower/tub for each guest. Awesome

Clean quiet rooms. Not a lot of action in the hotel which was great for sleeping. Rooms were big and clean and the beds were very comfortable. There is a restaurant on the first floor but I didn't eat there. It does have 4 stars....More

It's about a 30 minute walk. Not bad at all.

I would say to at least spend a long weekend there, but you could certainly make a week trip out of it as well! We found that this hotel was a great walking distance from downtown, and didn't use our car to drive anywhere... More

I could be wrong but I don't believe there is one. There are plenty of taxis and Ubers available. It's about $40 for cab from the airport to the hotel
