We stayed here because of its proximity to the concert venue at Thompson's Point, and for that limited purpose, this hotel is fantastic. The venue is just a short, safe walk away, and we will probably stay here again the next time we're in town...More

Hi, I don't remember exactly but it wasn't that far of a drive. It was close enough.

Sorry I don't know but I can tell you that it's a very short ride to the airport - 10 minutes tops (although I did not do it in rush hour).

I would not stay at this hotel ever again. It's the worst experience. We stayed 7 hotels in our 3 week vacation and the worst was this hotel. Run down, noisy, room is dirty looking. Filthy.
