On top of its convenience, guests were also impressed with their stay at this Renaissance property.

The in-house restaurant also gets knocked for its prices, though travelers do say the food is good. Those looking to save can use Marriott Bonvoy points to cover the cost of their room.

Overall, travelers describe this Renaissance property as comfortable and convenient, and the extra spacious floor plans cater to those traveling as a group or with kids in tow. Basic suites come with separate sitting areas, flat-screen TVs and minifridges, while the club level suites have complimentary snacks throughout the day.

And everyone can agree that the customer service here is on point. But that's not to say that this airport hotel isn't without fault: Some guests complain about the daily fees for in-room Internet service, the lack of a "park and fly" option and the thin room walls that let the sound of door slams in. By choosing to stay here, though, Marriott Bonvoy members can collect or redeem points.
