Fodor's Review

This elegant 14-story hotel towers near the tangled intersection of I–35 and US 290. It earns high marks for value, but feels removed from the city though it's only about 3 mi from downtown. The regularly renovated property has a resort air, with a semicircular fountain out front; a huge marbled lobby; an outsized indoor-outdoor heated pool; a large exercise room, whirlpool, and sauna; and modest-sized spa. Rooms are decorated with classic restraint, which some might

find stuffy or old-fashioned. (For a larger room without breaking the bank, request a corner king.) Upper floors have unobstructed views from the downtown skyline to the airport tower. A city bus stop is within walking distance; a free shuttle makes the 5-mi trip to the airport.

Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman would like this SouthPark

Nice place--easy commute to downtown, rooms were reasonable size and comfy, free parking, close to the airport (but no airport noise), and everybody on the staff treated us well. Only complaint is that a problem with the plumbing system means you have to let your shower water run 3-4 minutes beforehand to keep hot water circulating. Other than that one problem, everything was as nice as we expected.
