Great location for getting around but not the best for all
The location is the best part about my stay here. The other major contributor for a good write up is the fact that the Big Texas BBQ restaurant/bar is located in the building with access from the lobby. The staff were all very pleasant and were really great at checkout; when I left my bag with them while I went for lunch at the BBQ place and then picked it up when the BW shuttle was ready to take me to the airport.
The rooms were pretty good, but do not have freezers on the small frigs and there are no ice machines. There are no microwaves so any leftovers from a restaurant will not get reheated. The view out the dirty windows (very dusty on the outside) is not much to look at since it is in the middle of multiple high rises. The pool is small and usually too many kids yelling so not even comfortable to lay around and relax. The dining facility (used for breakfast) is their banquet hall with huge tables. There is no privacy most of the time and many of the families let their kids run around and play. The food is not western enough by any stretch. Most of the dishes, I had never even heard of nor could I pronounce - I like trying a variety of foods, but usually for breakfast I am old school and either like an American or English breakfast.
