8/10 Very good

Close and convenient to airport when you have an early flight. Also it is next to the mall and close to places to eat. Front desk was helpful with covid test info. Did not like the breakfast set up - saw people dropping the serving utensils and placed them back on the counter. There were gloves available but nobody inforcing the use of gloves. We were just a couple of minutes early for breakfast and staff was not happy.
