Hotel had everything I needed. Pool, restaurant, meeting space and a good night sleep after a very long flight. The lobby was a little small for my group however staff managed the process efficiently.

An excellkent gateway to Africa for our visit. Read less

This hotel is a short shuttle ride (free) from the airport so very convenient. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We mistakenly went to the guest services desk instead of the check in, and Mimi was so accommodating to us weary travelers! We had dinner and breakfast there. Both meals were above average - outstanding breakfast buffet. Each server was smiling, friendly, and welcoming. The hotel is modern and has, not surprisingly, an airplane theme which I found very cool The desk in our room was in the shape of an airplane wing, for example. Read less

Loved the aviation decor in this airport hotel and the lovely views of the airport tarmac. Great restaurant and front desk service. Brian, Irvin and s’Phelele were outstanding. Room upgrade was nice - thx.
